If you have relevant professional or voluntary experience, or a degree in international relations, politics, economics, business, sociology or law, this course will equip you with a unique interdisciplinary and applied approach to answering these crucial questions and more.
Starting from the origins of globalisation, you will examine the evolution of global production, distribution and trade. You will study the changing nature of global interaction between nations, businesses, labour and other interest groups. You will also learn about the role and influence of emerging economies, and gain an understanding of the different patterns and levels of economic development.
Learning draws on the extensive experience of our cross-departmental teaching staff as well as guest speakers who come in to talk about current issues. You will apply this through examining case studies on the challenges and opportunities of the global economy. You can also access support finding relevant placements and internships that draw on the contacts and experience of our tutors.
