Course summary

The MSc Global Prosperity prepares you to become one of a new generation of global leaders. The programme challenges current economic and social models that have generated both astonishing levels of wealth as well as deep social and ecological dilemmas. Through your study you will examine possible solutions to contemporary global challenges and explore how much-needed economic, social and political transformations can be enacted to deliver sustainable prosperity. The degree explores major global challenges and offers critical historical analyses of their origins in trends such as the drive for economic growth, unsustainable consumerism and sustainable development. You will explore models and theories of social, economic and technological change, and develop case-studies of ongoing radical prosperity transformations driven by actors from across the globe and from a range of positions including entrepreneurs, policymakers, business and civil society. Research methods classes examine how measures of prosperity, wellbeing and progress have been constructed and how alternative measures – both quantitative and qualitative – might be framed through transdisciplinary empirical research. You will also explore a variety of collective problem-solving methods such as human-centred design.

Careers

This programme will prepare students from a range of academic backgrounds for careers in policy-making, social and sustainable entrepreneurship, education, government, the third sector, and business, as well as doctoral-level research.

Employability

After graduation, students are expected to go on to define new routes to prosperity through working in policy-making, management and shared value, entrepreneurship, activism, education and research. IGP's extensive network of external partners and alumni will benefit students in building their careers and especially in their entrepreneurial endeavours.
