It offers diversity in the range of study, from international relations theory to regional integration. By studying business economics and international relations together, you will develop a critical awareness of the role of economic policies in shaping these global issues and help shape organisational responses to changes in the business and organisational environment.

A range of core modules underpin key business and financial principles:

  • Macroeconomics in a Global Context - presents an analysis of how the macroeconomy works in a global environment that is subject to international trade and factor endowment flows. You will gain the skills to relate the theory of macroeconomics to recent world events and debate the implications of macroeconomic policy.
  • Economics and Strategic Analysis - the aim of this module is for you to understand they key strategic decisions that individuals, firms ad organisations, face and the consequence of those decisions. You will also learn how to apply microeconomic models to solve current economic problems.   
  • Theory and Practice of International Relations –investigates the actual experience of emerging market economies (EMEs) and their contribution to the global economy. These theories are applied to discuss topics such as globalisation, growth, debt, banking, exchange rates, capital inflows and institutions. The module aims to introduce you to contemporary academic research and the issues that EMEs post to institutions and international business.
  • International Trade Theory and Policy - examines the real world international policy issues, within a coherent theoretical framework. The module will present an analysis of how the international economy works, in terms of trade theory and policy. Recent developments in the world economy have raised concerns regarding the nature of the international adjustment mechanism, and the merits of free trade compared with protectionism. This module will relate the theory of international economics to recent world events, to draw out the application of the theory and allow debate on policy implications.
  • Economics of Emerging Markets – investigates the actual experience of emerging market economies (EMEs) and their contribution to the global economy. These theories are applied to discuss topics such as globalization, growth, debt, banking, exchange rates, capital inflows and institutions.
