In line with the LSE’s principle to Advance Higher Education’s Race Equality Charter, the Department of Management is participating in the Aiming for a College Education Programme – Postgraduate Research Programmes (ACE - PGR). It is an initiative to widen access and participation for UK BAME applicants and students who are underrepresented in PGR programmes across LSE. This scheme will provide support to BAME candidates at three key stages of the PGR lifecycle: (1) Access, (2) Student Success, and (3) Career Progression.
