This China and Globalisation MSc course at King's College London will equip you with the conceptual and research tools necessary for the critical analysis of China’s social and economic trends, and support your understanding of Chinese public policies, business strategies and modes of international cooperation.
The ‘rise’ of China over the past three decades raises challenging questions about the relationships between politics and market expansion, international cooperation, business innovations, and cultural and social developments. Our course will provide you with the conceptual and research tools to critically understand these relationships from comparative and global perspectives.
