Course Description

We live in a world where business operations are becoming increasingly global in scale. National boundaries now matter very little to decisions about where goods are made and services provided. In this course you will learn what this means for today's business world.

The course has economics at its core, covering micro and macroeconomics. However, it is much broader than a standalone economics degree. It analyses the major external factors affecting global business, globalisation, and applied policy

International Relations is the process by which two or more nations work together to establish trade links and how they interact politically, culturally, and economically. Conflict, cooperation, and the increased significance of non-state actors are all hallmarks of the world today. We aim to help you develop skills and tools to make sense of these complex inter-relationships.

This course helps you turn your academic interests into practical skills. You'll draw on two highly-rated disciplines to help you understand global policy, trade, and relations.
