The MSc in Global Development and International Law is specially designed as an intense learning experience to acquaint students with an interdisciplinary approach to cross-cultural management, and the international and comparative legal issues of the dynamic global development community.
Reasons to choose Global Development and International Law MSc degree
The unique advantage of this course is that it is not Eurocentric or biased towards an exclusively Western vision of management. It seeks to address the cross-cultural complexities, politico-economic challenges and socio-legal dynamics of running Global Development Operations working within an inclusive and global perspective.
The course therefore is designed to increase mutual understanding and toleration across societies and their businesses, and to have an influence which strengthens legal systems of global and regional communities. It promotes ways of thinking and acting which nurture values supportive of a global civic ethic and multicultural leadership and management.
