Course summary

Programme

Explore the changing relationship between states and markets. In recent years, interest in the relationship between international business and global development has increased. On this joint business and global development MSc, you will study the politics of development, foreign direct investment and international institutions of global political-economic governance.

  • A joint programme, taught in partnership with the School of Business and Management
  • Gain an advanced theoretical grounding in the core aspects of business and international development, considering its history and politics and its growing internationalisation
  • Gain insight into global working lives, economic restructuring, migrant labour, multinational companies, work, geo-politics, industrialisation and international development
  • Conduct independent field-based research in diverse locations

What you'll study

Develop an advanced and critical understanding of the development of international business from various intellectual perspectives. Examine many approaches, from neo-liberal and mainstream business studies, through to more critical views which engage with questions of power and resistance.

You will consider issues concerning world economy and development, and will examine new theories around development futures. You will gain formal training in research design and methods.

Thereafter, you may select optional modules to focus on your areas of interest. These might include study of the economics of development, global governance, international business strategy and social and political marketing, among many other options offered by the School of Geography and the School of Business and Management.

You will receive tailored research supervision and training suitable to your individual research interests in order to complete your dissertation.
