Course content

This interdisciplinary programme will draw on theories, principles and teaching from a broad range of disciplines to analyse how macro-level global competitive pressures and national institutions impact the management of people in different organisations.

We will discuss the role of formal and cultural institutions in shaping organisations and the economy, and will evaluate how models of global best practice regarding work organisation and labour management spread unevenly across national borders. You will also gain a detailed insight into the impact of workplace politics and culture, and how these factors can shape the organisation of work and present problems of conflict, negotiation and accommodation.
Our inspiring location offers a unique learning environment for anyone who shares a passion for international business. London is one of the world’s leading hubs for global business and trade and is the ideal location for students to expand their knowledge, expertise and networks.
