The repertoire of LSE-led programmes has also grown to include Accounting, Business Analytics, Data Science, Digital Innovation, Economics, Finance, International Relations, Politics and Management.

The BSc programmes in Computer Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Web and Mobile Development saw enrolment grow ten-fold.

The collaboration with University College London started in 2016 with the management masters' - MSc in Professional Accountancy - for Chartered Accountants. Today, the MSc Accounting and Financial Management expands the pool of candidates beyond business to engineering, IT and science.
