As an MSc Global Prosperity student at University College London (UCL) you will examine the theories and methodologies to lead the transition towards sustainable global prosperity. You’ll be part of a community of peers who stay connected, offer each other advice and share successes throughout their careers.
To enhance your skills as a transition leader, the IGP will provide you with both a formal academic curriculum and a supplementary personal development curriculum:
- The formal curriculum comprises the core MSc modules, two options from across UCL and a dissertation project. Leading experts will contribute to the course as guest lecturers and you’ll have an academic supervisor who will support your work.
- The personal development curriculum will help you gain complementary skills and aptitudes through workshops, weekly seminars and mentorship.
Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered through targeted and innovative learning methods, including lectures, seminars, case studies, group work, and student presentations.
You will be assessed through a range of both formative and summative means. These will include formative group work and in class-discussions and presentations, followed by summative group/individual projects and presentations, case-study reports, essays, and blog posts. Assessment culminates in a dissertation which may be literature or research based.
This programme will prepare students from a range of academic backgrounds for careers in policy-making, social and sustainable entrepreneurship, education, government, the third sector, and business, as well as doctoral-level research.
After graduation, students are expected to go on to define new routes to prosperity through working in policy-making, management and shared value, entrepreneurship, activism, education and research. IGP's extensive network of external partners and alumni will benefit students in building their careers and especially in their entrepreneurial endeavours.
