What is the power of community, of active minorities, of social influence and attribution? How do people manage impressions and construct a sense of self? How are attitudes, representations and beliefs formed and transformed?

Annual careers event

Every year ISP organises a careers event where previous ISP students from a range of different careers share their professional knowledge and experience with current students. They advise students on how to approach the job market, how to focus on what they want to achieve professionally and how to use their degree as a stepping stone to the career of their dreams.

Previous students' thoughts on the value of a degree from ISP:

LSE on your CV:
“An MSc from LSE is an extremely respected qualification.”

LSE thinking:

“Whether you know it or not your mind is being irrevocably changed by your time at LSE (this is a good thing)."

A mouldable qualification:

“You could use your qualification to get a generalist management job. Others use it for specific org or psych related careers, or as a stepping stone to further academic studies.”

ISP Research report:

“Use your dissertation to build bridges with companies.”

Research methodology:

“This training has direct relevance for many businesses.”

Psychological benefits:

“The year improved my confidence and enhanced my critical thinking. The main thing is that an MSc in ISP will make your develop your own thinking – something most employers are looking for!”
