Applied Global Practice (Management) at Winchester is an exciting course addressing important global issues from a management perspective. How should we be working internationally to combat climate change, food insecurity, energy insecurity, and poverty? How can international businesses, organisations, charities, and public and voluntary bodies apply management skills to these problems?

Explore a range of global issues covering the world economy, international institutions (such as the UN System), development, security, markets, the environment, aid, peacekeeping, diplomacy, and corporate social responsibility. You can specialise in climate change, country risk analysis, economic development, or regeneration and poverty reduction, for example, by choosing one of these topics as your particular focus.

Increase your expertise in your fields of interest with modules such as Managing in a Global Environment, Health of Nations: International Health Policy and Systems, and Growth, Development and Inequality. Subject specialisms are also available, including Health and/or Environment, Growth and/or Development, Commercial Diplomacy and/or Country Risk Analysis.

Complete projects on the management of global issues – such as international aid relief, conflict resolution and regeneration projects. Produce management reports, project reports, and participate in presentations, role-play debates and panel discussions. Choose between a 20,000-word dissertation, an international project management report or a professional portfolio.

The programme is taught by a globally experienced team, and contributions from a variety of guest speakers, professionals and practitioners add to the range of expertise available.

A wide range of career opportunities are open to our graduates. Course alumni work in international commercial companies, international development organisations, non-governmental organisations, government departments, embassies, the entertainment industry, charities, consultancy, and international development teams.
