Is management not a good course? Its admittance ratio is like 1:11

So you think Management isn't considered a good course by LSE standard?

I don't understand what you mean by LSE standard but the only LSE courses I respect are Economics, Maths and Econ, Law, Acturial Science and Accounting and Finance to a lesser degree anything else is sub par.

This is a really ignorant view on a world class institution.

All of the subjects are useful to understand for life in general. There is no better course only course more popular and hence more difficult to get into doesn't make it any better.

One of the things I'm guessing they are looking for is someone who can utilise the knowledge they can learn from an opportunity to study from the best academics to make a change in the world.

In many instances the courses here being identified as the "worst courses to study at the LSE" are courses that cannot be bettered anywhere else: social policy, sociology. If you're going to study one these, the LSE is where you should want to be doing it. By contrast, subjects being claimed as the best are typically ones which can be matched by other insitutions (Law at several, Economics at one or two). So I sneak toward the suspicion that some people aren't contextualizing the question and instead seeing it as "of the courses on the LSE menu, which of these subjects do you like least?"


I dunno, mind, since I don't have a sibling graduating from UCL this year.

According to CUG, Sociology has the worst employment prospects for undergrads.

As for the worst course to study at LSE, I can't see how that can be decided other than subjectively.

Ignorant. Almost all courses at the LSE are world class and recognised as such by educated people. It's especially strong in IR and social policy. Since you've never sat in an LSE classroom, you're really not in a position to determine which courses are sub par.

I have visited LSE before. I apologise for offending you. It was my subjective opinion, not fact. I personally have little respect for IR and social policy.

Lmao, "it was my subjective opinion, not fact" - of course it was. So what? He thinks your opinion is ignorant.

Also, pretty jokes that a pre-uni teen is able to casually dismiss the fields of IR and Social Policy.

LSE's IR course is the best one outside North America (firmly in the top 5). Undergrad Econs has **** GTAs (I hear people complaining about this all the time).

PS oh I've just realised that you're an A-level kid. Come back in a couple of years.
