Connson is the Programme Director of this part-time Executive Global Masters in Management (EGMiM) degree and has been involved since its inception in 2012. Over the course of 17 months, students attend seven intensive one-week and two-week modules. Five modules take place on the LSE campus, and two modules take place in overseas locations. The overseas weeks are designed as an integral part of two subjects: the India module is part of the Marketing course and the China module is connected to the Foreign Direct Investment course. In addition to taking core business subjects such as Finance, Managerial Economics, and Leadership, students are also required to produce an independent piece of research by the end of the programme, either an academic dissertation or a proposal for a business idea. Students learn to think critically, analyse thoroughly, and provide evidence-based solutions to real business problems.
The EGMiM degree accepts 30-40 new students every August. Applicants should have a minimum of 3 years of full-time work experience, with the majority of students having more than 5 years (and up to 15-20 years). The average age of our cohorts is around 35 years old.
