Course content

Students on this master's programme will examine the strategies multinational firms use to compete in a global economy, as well as the development and policy challenges they create, from the perspectives of both developing and developed countries.

Designed to help you understand how multinational firms decide where and when to invest internationally, and how to evaluate the opportunities and challenges in different countries, you will look at how policies and regulations established by governments and supranational institutions affect the competitiveness of industries and firms. In addition to learning how firms are organised internally, students will take a holistic view of the international business environment. Students will therefore be able to connect the 'micro' firm view with the 'macro' view of countries and regions.
