Course content

This programme is ideal for students interested in a variety of careers including academia, government, think tanks, charities and the private sector. You will focus on important contemporary issues such as globalisation, international relations and inequality as well as other public policy challenges.

A cross-disciplinary Masters degree with offerings from management, economics, politics and accounting means you will gain an incredibly diverse and intellectually stimulating perspective on how each area directly impacts on the global political economy.

We utilise new international data sources and methods, so you will also learn how to fully comprehend, analyse and address issues affecting the global political and economic landscape whilst acquiring a wide range of quantitative and qualitative research skills.

This programme is available to study over 12-months full-time or 24-months part-time.

The course is delivered collaboratively by the University of Exeter, University of Bristol and the University of Bath as part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). You can elect to study optional modules at the universities of Exeter, Bristol or Bath.
