Course Summary

The MSc Global Corporations and Policy programme is designed for those engaged in, or aspiring to, professional careers in the public, corporate or not-for-profit sectors related to the political and economic management and regulation of multinational corporations.

This programme specifically addresses the requirements of those seeking a comprehensive theoretical and practical understanding of the role and dynamics of large corporations in the global economy and international affairs. The programme aims to prepare students for a variety of roles in government departments, regulatory agencies, international organisations (such as the OECD or WTO) industry bodies and NGOs and as advisors, managers, researchers or project professionals with multinational corporations, trade unions and advocacy organisations.

The programme has a multi-disciplinary structure and draws on the teaching and research strengths of CISD and of the SOAS departments of International Politics, Law, Economics and area studies (especially of Asia, Africa and the Middle East) as well as a wide range of languages. In addition to the three core modules of Multinational Enterprises, Global Public Policy and Project Management, students choose other modules to meet their specific professional needs and personal interests.

Students on this course will have the opportunity to participate in CISD's Study Tour of Geneva and Paris.

Modules

This module teaches a core set of skills required of policy professionals in the public, corporate and not-for-profit sectors at international and national levels. Policy analysts identify policy problems, formulate, evaluate and recommend possible solutions. Policy analysts thus help make policy. The module covers key concepts and theories that enable critical analysis of a given policy space and the complex and fractious processes by which policy is formulated, adopted and implemented. In particular, students will learn to be cognisant of the impact of relations of power, including those between the global North and South, and to question the assumptions inherent to conventional approaches to policy analysis and management.
