Course content

By exploring the extent and limitations as well as the benefits and risks of globalisation, this programme will enable you to develop a systematic understanding of the globalised environment in which modern businesses and economies must operate.

This pre-doctoral training programme is designed to provide a critical, research-led approach to international business. You will gain a firm understanding of the global arena in which financial firms operate, together with training in research skills appropriate for Doctoral-level study.

You will choose from a broad range of modules to supplement your own research. You could focus on international business strategy, management consulting, international macroeconomics and finance global supply chain management and other varied aspects of international business. This array of subjects will give you preparation for a career in multinational business, as well as for those aiming to undertake a PhD.

Modules offered are in conjunction with the School's International Business MSc.

You will cover core modules in research design, qualitative and quantitative methods. This gives you the opportunity to expand your professional network, as you share these modules with students from King’s College London and Imperial College, as part of the training offered by the London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS-DTP). This course is an approved pathway for ESRC funding, which could cover the costs of both this MRes and a PhD
