Hi, I am doing Economics for undergraduate degree and thinking about applying for Economics and Economics&Management in LSE. Do I need to adjust my PS to fit in something on management basis? I am a bit struggle because I could exceed the word limit.

It isn't a good idea to apply for more than one course at one uni so either apply for economics or economics and management and tailor your PS accordingly.

Don't you get to write a separate PS for each application? If so each one will need to be tailored to the course. I only applied for one MSc (and not at LSE) so I'm not sure if that's feasible.

Exceeding the word limit just means you have to edit it so it's within the limit.

LSE is two courses per application and they look at the applications sequentially - so you need to tailor your statement towards your first choice programme.

So if Economics and Management is your first choice then write a statement for that including management aspects.

But if Economics is your first choice then it should be mainly economics with a little bit about management in case you don't get into Economics but get passed on to E&M.

Having said that, LSE is so competitive that writing a statement to cover two programmes is always going to be difficult - sometimes it's better to choose one and really go for it.
