The London School of Economics Academic Stay
The Master student will receive classes in the London School of Economics for a week. Lectures will be given by prestigious professionals from the City of London as well as by members of the LSE’s faculty.
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE ) is a centre of world renown for teaching and research in all matters related to economic, social and political sciences. There is no other university in the world which is as global in the origin of its students and teachers, or in the focus of its activity. Ever since its foundation, the aim of the LSE has been to convert itself into an authentic laboratory of economic and social sciences, a platform to develop, analyze and assess ideas to be divulged around the world. LSE has over 65,000 registered students in 195 countries.
LSE has, for many years, occupied the first places in the Times Higher Education Supplement rankings, only behind Harvard University and before institutions such as Stanford University or MIT.
Its library is the most extensive social sciences library in the world. Founded in 1896, it is also known as the British Library of Political and Economic Science. Over 95 percent of its funds are available during opening hours. Its 4 million printed volumes are stored on 50 km of shelves. There are over 1,600 study posts with 480 connected PCs and 226 sockets for laptops. Over 8,000 electronic publications are available online.
Located in the heart of London, the school is in the centre of one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. At a stone’s throw from the European legal and financial centers, LSE is at the centre of international debate, fundamental for the identity of the School as an outwardly oriented institution with an active participation in British, European and world affaires.
LSE graduates are found in posts of responsibility in economic, business, industrial, political and social sectors and in international organizations around the world. LSE students and teachers include 13 Nobel Prize winners, 28 Heads of State and personalities in government positions around the world.
Students can also enjoy the British tradition of London clubs since during their stay in London they will be invited to a Gala dinner in the Carlton Club.
