This programme asks you to engage with a number of fundamental questions:
  • What does the global economy look like?
  • What are the patterns and directions of international trade, investment and migration?
  • How has the global economy developed over time?
  • What is the impact of globalisation on how people live their lives?
  • What opportunities and challenges exist in the global economy?
  • What is the role of governments: at regional, national and supra-national levels; in mediating or regulating the global economy?
  • You will gain a broad understanding of current economic and business policy issues in the context of a rapidly changing and dynamic global environment; and a secure and critical grasp of the extent, causes and implications of a more fully integrated world economy, which equips you to play key leadership roles in corporate, non-governmental organisations or policy-driven environments.
  • You will benefit from the extensive use of a range of social science approaches, techniques and vocabulary: including those derived from economics, management, law and political science; but no prior specialist training or expertise is required.
  • You will be taught by a unique grouping of highly talented academics whose interests span the disciplines of business, economics, politics, social science and social policy, but whose core mission is to provide real-world as well as historical context to help develop understanding of current issues and problems.
