The MA Globalisation and Multinational Corporations (GMC) programme is designed for those engaged in, or aspiring to, professional careers in the public, corporate or not-for-profit sectors related to the political and economic management and regulation of multinational corporations.

GMC specifically addresses the requirements of those seeking a comprehensive theoretical and practical understanding of the role and dynamics of large corporations in the global economy and international affairs. The programme aims to prepare students for a variety of roles in government departments, regulatory agencies, international organisations (such as the OECD or WTO) industry bodies, NGOs, as advisors, managers, researchers or project professionals with multinational corporations, trade unions and advocacy organisations.

The programme has a multi-disciplinary structure and draws on the teaching and research strengths of CISD and of the SOAS departments of International Politics, Law, Economics and area studies (especially of Asia, Africa and the Middle East) as well as a wide range of languages. In addition to the three core modules of Multinational Enterprises, Global Public Policy and Project Management, students choose other modules to meet their specific professional needs and personal interests.

Key benefits

• A week long study trip to Geneva and Paris
• Study trips to major multinational enterprises
• Advanced media and communication skills training by current and former BBC staff
• Guest lectures by leading scholars and senior practitioners (visit the CISD website to listen to the podcasts)
• Opportunities to actively participate in Centre research programmes

Course detail

You will develop a comprehensive understanding of the role and dynamics of large corporations in the global economy and international affairs, enabling you to critically analyse and design solutions to regulatory and public policy changes related to Multinational Enterprise activities globally.

As well as gaining skills in policy analysis, project management, advocacy, negotiation and strategic communication, you will have the opportunity to take a European Study Tour of international organisations, a media internship with SOAS Radio or volunteering roles, addressing themes such as global disarmament, war crimes, and corporate accountability.

You will have access to a wealth of study resources including the SOAS Library, one of the world's most important academic libraries, attracting scholars from across the globe.

A global perspective

Studying at SOAS University of London enhances your learning experience by giving you a global perspective through analysis of economic, legal and public policy approaches to researching Multinational Enterprise organisation, impact and regulation in the global economy.

Expert at where the world is changing

Drawing on SOAS teaching and research strengths in International Studies, Diplomacy, Law, Politics, and Economics, and leveraging distinctive global academic expertise, this programme has a multi-disciplinary structure and seeks to look beyond the traditional Western-centric approach.

Programme objectives

On the course, you will develop:

• Excellent understanding of the development and activities of Multinational Enterprises (MNE) and their regulation from economic and legal perspectives.

• Excellent knowledge of economic, legal and public policy approaches to researching MNE organisation, impact and regulation in the global economy.

• Ability to critically analyse and design solutions to regulatory and public policy challenges related to MNE activities in both the global North and South.

• Development of practical skills including policy analysis, project management, advocacy, negotiation and strategic communication.

Attendance

The programme may be taken in one year (full time) or in two or three years part time with the schedule designed to allow participation by those in full time employment. Participants may choose a combination of modules to meet their professional needs and personal interests. The programme is convened on a multi-disciplinary basis, and teaching is through lectures, tutorials and workshops conducted by SOAS faculty and visiting specialists.

Lectures for GMC modules usually take place in the evening (18.00-20.00) and associated tutorials are repeated in hourly slots starting as early as 14.00 for some modules, with the latest taking place at 20.00. Students sign up for tutorial groups at the start of term and stay in the same group throughout the academic year.

Description

The MA in Arms Control & International Security is a joint course with the Departments of War Studies and Defence Studies at King’s College London.
