Overview

The Global Corporations and Policy (Online) programme from SOAS University of London aims to prepare students for a variety of roles in government departments, regulatory agencies, international organisations (such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) or World Trade Organization (WTO)) industry bodies and NGOs and as advisors, managers, researchers or project professionals with multinational corporations, trade unions and advocacy organisations.

The MSc programme has a multi-disciplinary structure and draws on the teaching and research strengths of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (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. The programme is delivered by the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD) in association with the FCO's Diplomatic Academy, using a combination of multi-disciplinary teaching, cutting-edge research and public discussion of diplomacy and international politics in a globalised world. Students will gain an excellent understanding of the development and activities of Multinational Enterprises (MNE) and their regulation from economic and legal perspectives. 

The MSc will provide knowledge of economic, legal and public policy approaches to researching MNE organisation, impact and regulation in the global economy and an ability to critically analyse and design solutions to regulatory and public policy challenges related to MNE activities in both the global North and South.  Students will develop practical skills including policy analysis, project management, advocacy, negotiation and strategic communication. We welcome applications from academically strong individuals from a wide variety of fields and backgrounds; however, is not necessary to have a first degree in a discipline directly related to globalisation and multinational corporations. Each application is assessed on its individual merits and entry requirements may be modified in light of relevant professional experience and where the applicant can demonstrate a sustained practical interest in the international field.
