You will analyse diverse issues such as the changing nature of international competition, trade, migration and global governance. You will expand your knowledge of modern political economy and explore global consumption as an engine of growth. You will debate the 2008 financial crisis, discussing how it began, the definition of crisis and how the world responded.
You will gain an understanding of how international political economy differs from economics. As well as measuring economic growth, you will also understand its distribution of costs and benefits, together with its social, political and environmental impact.
This International Political Economy at Leeds Beckett University is an opportunity for you to embrace and scrutinise aspects of politics, sociology, history, philosophy and geography in relation to economic globalisation.
Employment opportunities are available in the UK and overseas working for Non Government Organisations, the public sector, international organisations and the media. Employers will value your ability to think and work independently and challenge conventional wisdom in order to solve complex problems. Our expert staff are well associated with many major organisations, which will benefit you when looking for a career in this field.
