The MSc Global Prosperity prepares you to become one of a new generation of global leaders. The programme challenges current economic and social models that have generated both astonishing levels of wealth as well as deep social and ecological dilemmas. Through your study you will examine possible solutions to contemporary global challenges and explore how much-needed economic, social and political transformations can be enacted to deliver sustainable prosperity.
The mission of the Institute for Global Prosperity (IGP) is to rethink social and environmental prosperity and to generate new economic models and measures to deliver prosperity. Prosperous communities are socially inclusive, equitable, and sustainable, however, radical changes are required to overcome today's grand challenges and to enact such properity.
The IGP is pioneering research into questions of prosperity and driving forward novel transdisciplinary engagments to deliver new more properous social and economic forms. As a student in the depertment you will have the opportunity to become part of this emerging community, to learn from and participate in our research, and to help to shape debates around what a prosperous society should be. We expect students to graduate as leaders who go on to deploy the ideas and practices they have learnt in future careers.
Students will have the opportunity to engage with a range of IGP researchers, partners and affiliated fellows with possibilities of developing academic, policy or business-oriented projects. As a multidisciplinary global university with wide resources at its disposal, UCL is the ideal environment in which to study sustainable global prosperity.
