About

Join the MA in Globalisation, Business and Sustainable Development at the University of East Anglia and gain comprehensive knowledge in the field of globalisation, business and sustainable development and equip yourself with the necessary skills to pursue a career in this fascinating area. 

Overview

The process of globalisation is central to an understanding of the contemporary world. The nature of this process and its implications for international development are hotly debated and you’ll tackle key questions including:

  • Is globalisation leading to increasing international inequality and poverty, or does the expansion of international trade in goods and services provide new opportunities for developing countries?
  • How can we make sense of emergent trends such as fair trade, social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility and sustainable consumption?
  • Does globalisation call for a radical overhaul of existing international, national and local institutions?
  • And why is it so difficult to solve global environmental problems such as climate change?

You’ll also consider the counter-tendencies and resistance to globalisation and how these are played out in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

The MA in Globalisation, Business and Sustainable Development at the University of East Anglia will provide you with the tools to critically analyse the process of globalisation and its impact on international development.

Careers

A career in international development can take you in all kinds of directions such as international organisations, governmental and non-governmental organisations, local governments, private sector and PhD programmes.
