No opinion of CEO

Pros

The brand has global prestige. The people are generally top-notch. There is a surprising lack of arrogance amongst most. The institution offers many courses and programs for faculty development.

Cons

Teaching load often too high to make much research happen during term time. Marking / grading process is ridiculously painful and archaic. Often concerns with standards and fairness mean that students are not learning as much as they should.

Advice to Management

Work to remove bureaucracy as much as possible. Pay more to faculty in order to retain them. Currently faculty often need to work extra jobs - like summer school or consulting - simply to make ends meet in London.

    Advice to Management

    More actively lead the change necessary to maintain LSE as a world class institution. In light of the money now being paid, to treat students as the customers they are with the respect and level of service they deserve.
