Description:

Our MSc course provides you with high-quality post-graduate teaching and research training in the analysis of emerging economies. It offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on rising economic powers and some of the questions surrounding their emergence as key players in global politics and the economy. It also draws on social scientific expertise from across other departments in the Faculties of Social Sciences & Public Policy and Arts & Humanities.

This course focuses on reviewing economic development theory to ask whether emerging economies offer a new model or models of development. It looks at the strategies that they have adopted to promote development, how inclusive and sustainable or enduring these new strategies are and how emerging markets solve the difficult problems of promoting growth over the longer term. While investigating this last question we will discuss how these countries handle the development and diffusion of technology, how they manage trade and financial flows, how they balance the role of the state and the market, and how they deal with problems of institutional underdevelopment and weak systems of law and accountability.

Career prospects:

Our course provides you with high-quality graduate research training that will greatly enhance your employability in the development sector, both in the UK and other OECD countries, as well as in ?emerging economies?. You can also transfer the skills to a career in consultancy organisations, private sector companies with global operations and government offices. Our course is ideal if you are an international student seeking specialist training and/or government employment.
