    Over the last two decades the world has seen an increased globalisation of economic relations with a consequent highlighting of issues in international economics. Trade and international flows of goods, finance and resources, including people, are now increasingly part of everday life as well as business.

We aim to provide you with an advanced contemporary grounding in mainstream economic theory with a particular focus on international economics. You will be equipped with the analytical techniques and research methods essential to undertaking research into issues in the international sphere.
