It’s something that fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide have achieved, so you can be sure you’re in good hands.
Focusing on sustainable economic development in a globalised market, this course has a particular emphasis on emerging markets. It reflects the growing interest and activity in economic development, particularly the role for industrial hubs and clusters in rapidly developing areas of the world such as Latin America and China, among several others.

You will also have the option to complete a 30-week work placement with a finance employer to help increase your employability even further.
