**WHY THIS PROGRAMME**

You will gain a broad understanding of current economic and business policy issues in the context of a rapidly changing and dynamic global environment.

You will gain a secure and critical grasp of the extent, causes and implications of a more fully integrated world economy, which equips you to play key leadership roles in corporate, non-governmental organisations or policy-driven environments.

You will benefit from the extensive use of a range of social science approaches, techniques and vocabulary: including those derived from economics, management, law and political science; but no prior specialist training or expertise is required.

You will be taught by a unique grouping of highly talented academics whose interests span the disciplines of business, economics, politics, social science and social policy, but whose core mission is to provide real-world as well as historical context to help develop understanding of current issues and problems.

**PROGRAMME STRUCTURE**

You will take three core and three optional courses and submit a dissertation. You will attend lectures, seminars and tutorials and take part in project and team work. You will also benefit from our programme of guest seminars.

**Core courses**
- Business in the global economy

- Research design

- The globalised economy.

**Optional courses may include**
