The global economy is a complex and challenging place. This Masters in Global Economy, taught by internationally acknowledged experts in their fields, unravels many of the complexities and explores the challenges. This programme is ideal for those who do not have a degree or background in economics or business but wish to explore the field.
- You will gain a broad understanding of current economic and business policy issues in the context of a rapidly changing and dynamic global environment.
- You will gain a secure and critical grasp of the extent, causes and implications of a more fully integrated world economy, which equips you to play key leadership roles in corporate, non-governmental organisations or policy-driven environments.
- You will benefit from the extensive use of a range of social science approaches, techniques and vocabulary: including those derived from economics, management, law and political science; but no prior specialist training or expertise is required.
- You will be taught by a unique grouping of highly talented academics whose interests span the disciplines of business, economics, politics, social science and social policy, but whose core mission is to provide real-world as well as historical context to help develop understanding of current issues and problems.
You will study three core courses and three optional courses and undertake a dissertation during the final phase of the programme. You will attend lectures, seminars and tutorials and take part in project and team work. You will benefit from our programme of guest seminars.
