Globalization and Sustainable Development

– About the programme

Globalization and the increased interconnectedness created by the rapid flow of capital, people, goods, images and ideologies across national boundaries requires a new set of specialized educational tools. The two-year MSc in Globalization and Sustainable Development prepares students to analyze the complex interactions between the political, economic, cultural and social trends which are having profound effects on our contemporary world. The student will gain: 

- An interdisciplinary perspective on the implications of globalization on civil society, state power, changing patterns of national culture and global markets and technologies.

- A clear understanding of the effects of globalization on key actors in the global arena whether NGOs, global corporations, international campaigning groups, states or multilateral institutions.

- The ability to employ interdisciplinary approaches to the practical challenges posed by globalization through an internship undertaken in a global company or organization.
