International Business and Emerging Markets

The programme aims to help students understand how to do international business especially from developmental states. It will help them understand the particular challenges faced in developing corporate strategy, attracting foreign direct investment and working in countries with very different cultures, institutions, laws and business practices.

If emerging markets are, by their very nature, in a state of flux, then already successful economies are characterised by a different kind of dynamic. And as the pace of globalisation accelerates, the need to understand the drivers of national and international economic and business success becomes ever more acute. That gives graduates of this MSc some very real career advantages.

The programme will suit those with a background in or experience of the commercial or financial worlds. It is useful for students from emerging economies who wish to bring themselves up to speed with contemporary thinking in corporate strategy, including technology and financial management and business economics, and of public policies dealing with pressing issues relating to development in general. It is equally useful for students from already established economies seeking to understand how businesses can take advantage of the globalisation of the world economy and the rapid development of these new economic powerhouses.

Students on the programme come from all over the world, looking for objective, in-depth insights into global business practice. The knowledge they gather helps them develop successful careers as consultants, managers or analysts in the broad arena of international business.
