Course content

By critically 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.
On this programme, you will develop applied knowledge and reasoning in relation to the economics of globalisation and the resulting challenges to business strategy and management. You will cover a broad range of topics, from the international economy, macroeconomic policy and finance, to managerial economics, multinationals and global business – all the while maintaining a focus on the practice of effective research and analytical techniques. You will learn and practise specific research methods and will apply the knowledge you have acquired on the programme in debates and presentations.
