The London School of Economics (LSE) is offering a series of open enrolment executive programs intended to update managers in the latest thinking on various topics. But not everyone can enroll.
The first ever LSE Executive Summer School comprises 11 courses, each a week in length, and will be taught by 15 academics. The courses will run between June 22 and July 3. Topics include "Business Analysis and Valuation in Volatile Times," "What's Wrong with the EU and How to Fix it" and "Leadership: Current Approaches to Leadership and Applications to Professional Development."
According to Richard Jackman, the summer school's academic director, the programs are of the highest intellectual caliber. They will have real depth and not just offer patchwork learning. The registrations will therefore be reviewed by the academic director responsible for the respective subject area. Admission is based on the academic experience and professional expertise of the applicants.
The tuition bees are £ 2,750 (2,935 euros) and include a non-refundable registration fee in the amount of £ 100 (107 euros). Those who book two courses pay only £ 4,675 (4,988 euros).
The LSE doesn't offer an MBA program itself, but it does offer the Executive MBA "Trium" with the Stern School of Business at New York University and the HEC School of Management in Paris. Faculty from the school also teaches in company-specific programs with Duke Corporate Education, the executive education branch of the US-based Duke University.
