Course content

We believe business plays a significant role in providing solutions to the many local, national and global developmental challenges we face today – particularly in the age of globalisation.

Based at IDS, you’ll examine the key elements of business operations and their growing relevance to international development.

You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of economic power shifts and rapid technological transformation amid global inequalities. You’ll develop the analytical and practical skills needed to understand globalisation processes and their drivers, and to participate in the formulation of policies for sustainable development.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19.
