Course summary

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.
