This International Development programme from University of Warwick will introduce you to the intellectual foundations of International Development, to the key events and themes which have shaped its evolution, and to the current context of crises and tensions.
This includes the major debates of growth vs inequality, efficiency vs democracy, state vs market led development and modernity vs tradition. It also includes analysis of the institutions of International Development put in place through the Bretton Woods System, the various United Nations institutions, governmental and non-governmental policies and practices.
The programme acknowledges that theoretical work and empirical work are not separate exercises. Practical problems stimulate theory construction, and theories inform the ways in which we handle substantive issues. The modules offered by this programme include both theoretical and applied learning though both the core module as well as a series of topic specific optional modules.
Graduates from these courses have gone on to work for employers including: Deloitte; Japan Ministry of Defense; Nationwide Building Society; The Cabinet Office; University of Kent; Transport for London and West Midlands Police. They have pursued roles such as: business and financial project management professionals; economists; finance officers; management consultants; business analysts and public services associate professionals.
