Old Aberdeen Campus
This programme is designed to train specialists for careers in the international finance or in the government/non-government (NGO) sectors, where an understanding of global flows of money, trade and labour, and the global distribution of wealth they engender, is required.
Over the last few decades, there has been a steady increase in cross-border financial flows, as a result of the globalisation of financial markets. At the same time, we have witnessed fundamental societal and political changes and how nation-states behave and interact with one another, as well as technological advances and financial innovation.
As a result, businesses, governments, and investors therefore face an ever-growing need to understand the relationship between political relations and international markets. By combining the key theories and themes in the study of international political economy with corporate finance and investments, this Masters programme addresses the need, by teaching the advanced skills needed to gather, analyse and evaluate information on the politics of international finance and to enable you to communicate how international finance, banking, and stock markets intersect with national and international political events.
Applicants for admission will normally be expected to hold a relevant Honours degree with a 2:1 standard from a recognised university or body. We welcome applications from students from across a wide range of academic backgrounds. You do not need a degree in business or politics to be considered for this programme.
