Our Emerging Economies & International Development MSc offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on emerging economies. Read more

Our Emerging Economies & International Development MSc offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on emerging economies. We cover subjects such as development theory, political economy, geography and social policy. You will also have the opportunity to focus on particular countries and regions.

Key benefits

  • A distinctive approach to the study of development.
  • Interdisciplinary course that enables you to study emerging economies and international development from a variety of different perspectives.
  • Extensive selection of optional modules draw on expertise across King’s with particular emphasis on our Global Institutes.
  • We accept students from a wide range of academic backgrounds as well as mid-career professionals.

Description

Our MSc course provides you with high-quality post-graduate teaching and research training in the analysis of emerging economies. It offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on rising economic powers and some of the questions surrounding their emergence as key players in global politics and the economy. It also draws on social scientific expertise from across other departments in the Faculties of Social Sciences & Public Policy and Arts & Humanities.

This course focuses on reviewing economic development theory to ask whether emerging economies offer a new model or models of development. It looks at the strategies that they have adopted to promote development, how inclusive and sustainable or enduring these new strategies are and how emerging markets solve the difficult problems of promoting growth over the longer term. While investigating this last question we will discuss how these countries handle the development and diffusion of technology, how they manage trade and financial flows, how they balance the role of the state and the market, and how they deal with problems of institutional underdevelopment and weak systems of law and accountability.

Course format and assessment

Teaching

For every 20-credit module we will typically provide 20 hours of lectures and seminars, and we will expect you to undertake 180 hours of independent study. For your dissertation, you will usually have five hours of dissertation workshops and six hours of one-to-one or group consultation with supervisors. To complement this, you should undertake 589 hours of independent study and project work. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

Assessment

Our Department assesses all modules through a 4,000-word essay, although other departments may differ. We will assess your dissertation module through a proposal and a 12,000-word dissertation.

Career prospects

Our course provides you with high-quality graduate research training that will greatly enhance your employability in the development sector, both in the UK and other OECD countries, as well as in ‘emerging economies’. You can also transfer the skills to a career in consultancy organisations, private sector companies with global operations and government offices. Our course is ideal if you are an international student seeking specialist training and/or government employment.

The MSc Construction in Emerging Economies is highly innovative in its design and specifically focused on the needs of countries undergoing rapid urbanisation. Read more

The MSc Construction in Emerging Economies is highly innovative in its design and specifically focused on the needs of countries undergoing rapid urbanisation. Many such countries contain urban conurbations with a GDP in excess of some developed countries, but at the same time they also possess vast rural areas which remain poor and underdeveloped. The construction sector in such economies is invariably at the nexus of sustainable development.

The distinctive focus is on countries undergoing rapid urbanisation, placing construction-related knowledge within the economic, social and developmental contexts in emerging economies.

The course is aimed at early-to-mid-career professionals with an interest in the role of construction in emerging economies. The course will appeal to those seeking to bring about practical changes in a range of different national contexts. It will also appeal to those working with international NGOs who require a better understanding of construction in a developmental context.

The course content reflects the unique expertise available at the University of Reading, including our extensive international experience. The staff who contribute to the course are highly research-active, and many possess extensive experience of advising governments, NGOs and private-sector firms. But you will not only learn from members of staff; you will also learn from each other through joint engagement in experiential project work.

The interdisciplinary character of our courses matches the complexity of sustainable development. The principles of public-private partnership lie at the heart of the curriculum. Old dichotomies of public vs private are of little relevance to the real-world problems of the 21st Century. What is important is to have workable solutions specifically designed for localised needs. The 'one-size-fits-all' solutions promoted by the advocates of globalisation are rarely appropriate when faced with the lived realities of real people.

The modular structure of the course allows you to select subjects that meet their own needs and interests, while developing a core set of knowledge and skills. In addition to guiding theoretical principles, there is also a strong focus on the development of critical thinking ability together with the practical skills which are needed to make a difference.

What will you study?

Sample modules

  • International construction labour markets
  • Construction sector transition pathways in emerging economies
  • Financial and management accounting in construction
  • Building information modelling
  • Strategic management

Please note that all modules are subject to change. Please see our modules disclaimer for more information.

Dissertation

The dissertation is a major individual research project. Guidance will be given on choosing a research topic, research techniques and the style and presentation of the finished document. Classes in research skills are provided as part of the dissertation module. Students will have their own carefully selected dissertation tutor whose role is to help them plan and successfully execute this key part of the programme.

Full-time

We offer a one-year, full-time modular course. It is taught with ten, one-week attendance periods at the University. The full-time programme starts in September each year.

Flexible part-time

We also offer a two-year, part-time modular course. It is taught with ten, one-week attendance periods at the University. The duration of the flexible route is strongly recommended as two years, but this is not fixed. The flexible course starts in September each year.

What career can you have?

Future career paths are likely to be within central governmental agencies, local/regional government, NGOs or the private sector. In the private sector, some graduates will work for major international construction companies who are seeking to develop their international market in emerging economies. Others may work for construction firms and construction clients who are employing those international firms. There are many opportunities to make a difference in the public and private sectors, especially at the interface between different emerging economies and with the more developed countries.

Graduates will gain a sound theoretical grounding in the area of International Business and develop a range of analytical and personal skills.

Programme Overview

If you want to pursue a career in international management—but want to develop a more in-depth understanding of global business issues, or even study a business subject for the first time—MSc International Business is for you. The programme aims to provide a thorough understanding of management concepts as well as detailed knowledge of international business in theory and practice.

Taught by international business experts

You will undertake modules which reflect the unique expertise of our academic staff: studies of international strategy and management, including important business and management issues arising in emerging economies. Research specialisms which inform teaching on the programme include intellectual property protection systems in diverse institutional settings; the impact of geographical location (including in major cities), on the strategies and operations of multinational firms; the impact of differences in institutional systems for the strategies of multinational firms; and strategy and operations in emerging economies, including technology transfer.

Learn specialist theory

You will be exposed to current theories and practices in large and small businesses around the world. The programme develops understanding of theoretical and conceptual frameworks that enhance understanding of the strategy and operations of multinational firms, including exporting and importing, and a wide range of different types of foreign direct investments. You will learn how cross-cultural differences influence the structure of management systems and operational functions in the wide variety of international business activities undertaken by multinational firms. The complex nature of the international business environment is examined, including the effects on international business activities of major changes to economic, technological, social, institutional and cultural environments. The influence on effective international management of the changing nature of business interactions between countries is also examined. The programme has a strong focus on emerging economies such as Brazil, China and India.

You will cover the key business topics of accounting, marketing, finance, and economics. Combined with knowledge of the key characteristics of international business environments, and international strategy, you will be able to analyse major issues in international management and deal with the challenges of the global business environment.

Gain the skills employers look for

The connections between finance and development are crucial to the growth prospects of developing and emerging economies. They are also the focus of some of the most interesting intellectual developments of recent decades.

Our new MSc International Finance and Economic Development provides students with a solid understanding of the key economic and financial issues involved in economic development, including:

* ‘macro’ issues in economic development such as rural development and urbanisation, industrialisation, the informal sector, the international context of development and policies for trade and growth, and the role of foreign aid;
* 'micro' issues in development such as credit markets, insurance, health care, gender issues and education;
finance and development, with particular reference to emerging economies;
* the international monetary and financial system and how this impinges on developing and emerging economies.

Sustainability increasingly influences tourism planning, development, governance and management as the industry expands globally. Read more
Sustainability increasingly influences tourism planning, development, governance and management as the industry expands globally. As the growth rate of emerging economies doubles that of advanced economies in the years leading to 2030, sustainable tourism plays a significant role in the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

This course meets the growing demand for specialists in tourism planning, marketing and industry management who not only have a broad and deep understanding of global business activity, but also a clear insight into the consequences of planning and policymaking on the environment, society, culture and the economy.

In this industry-focussed course you will explore sustainable organisations across urban and rural development and regeneration; natural resource management and wildlife conservation; and the diversifying benefits from international and domestic tourism. You will gain enhanced practical and analytical skills to develop tourism policies and practices built on sustainable practice in a global setting.

Our academic staff are widely regarded as research pioneers in the field of high-yield, independent (or backpacker) travel, and the associated impacts on urban tourism and the development of small- and medium-sized enterprises.

To broaden your understanding of the international market and the role that a sustainable tourism industry can play in emerging economies, study overseas. You can attend a partially funded intensive field school to examine the patterns of development within an Asia-Pacific emerging economy, such as Fiji, Vietnam or Cambodia. Or you can participate in an international student exchange semester at one of our prestigious partner universities in Sweden, Estonia or Latvia.

Graduates are employed in a variety of government and private-sector tourism organisations: state, regional and national tourism offices; management consultancy firms; advertising agencies; media and TV research and journalism; internet communication organisations; local government tourism agencies; international education organisations; and airline and tour operators.

Course Structure

The course is structured in three parts. Part A. Foundations for international sustainable tourism management studies, Part B. Core Master's study and Part C. Advanced expertise. All students complete Part B. Depending upon prior qualifications, you may receive credit for Part A or Part C or a combination of the two.

[Note that if you are eligible for credit for prior studies you may elect not to receive the credit.]

PART A. Foundations for international sustainable tourism management studies
These studies will introduce you to international sustainable tourism studies at advanced undergraduate or graduate level. They are intended for students whose previous qualification is not in a cognate field. .

PART B. Core Master's study
These studies draw on best practices within the broad realm of the tourism industry, policy governance and research, to develop a critical understanding of the relationships between tourism and sustainable development with a particular emphasis on emerging economies and the development of small and medium-sized enterprises within them.

PART C. Advanced expertise
The focus of these studies is professional or scholarly work that can contribute to a portfolio of professional development. You have two options.

The first option is a program of coursework study where you select the units to suit your own interests. This option includes the opportunity to undertake an internship in the field.

The second option is a 24 point research thesis. Students wishing to use this Masters course as a pathway to a higher degree by research should take this second option.

Students admitted to the course, who have a recognised honours degree in a cognate discipline including humanities or social sciences, will receive credit for Part C, however, should they wish to complete a 24 point research project as part of the course they should consult with the course coordinator

The LLM in Banking and Finance Law provides a thorough grounding in the fundamental principles of international finance and financial services law, covering local and international developments from practical, regulatory and policy perspectives. A wide range of regulatory and transactional areas are covered including, monetary law, banking law, financial regulation, central banking, securities law, secured transactions, corporate finance and M&As, insolvency cross-border insolvency, electronic banking, financing of developing economies, EU financial law and business ethics. You can choose from a wide selection of modules to design a programme of study that best facilitates your interests.

Our academics are engaged in current banking and finance policy making and legal regulatory reforms. In light of the recent economic global crisis and the ensuing new regulations, modules have been developed to reflect these changes, for example ‘Islamic Finance and Commercial Law’ and ‘Ethics in Business and in Finance’. This has led to the creation of a seminar series, featuring prominent figures from both industry and academia.

Professional Module Exemptions

The Chartered Banker Institute (CBI) has recognised masters programmes offered by the School of Economics and Finance for advanced standing for the Chartered Banker Diploma. Graduates can proceed directly to the Chartered Banker Diploma with no requirement for prior underpinning study, recognising the high level of commonality of elements within LLM Law and Economics programme content against the CBI’s Diploma modules.

Networking opportunities

On many of our modules, you will have the opportunity to hear from and discuss with prominent figures from leading institutions, including the Bank of England, the World Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the European Central Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund, as well as partners in law firms from across the world.

In just one generation, the world has witnessed a dramatic increase in the economic interdependence of countries and shifts in global economic power. This reshaped global economic map has many drivers, including key international institutions and accords that seek to promote enhanced competitiveness, trade and foreign direct investment globally.

The LLM in International Economic Law aims to provide students with both a theoretical understanding and the practical legal skills set for analysing the roles that institutions play in regulating crucial international economic relations and their specific rules that often become the agreed framework for national regulation across economic sectors.

This programme will enable you to explore the significant policy issues that arise in the development and implementation of these international economic legal frameworks.

You will be able to choose from a comprehensive range of modules that focus on these international economic regulatory frameworks as they impact diverse economic sectors, including finance, trade, investment, innovation and knowledge.

Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and, in many cases, professional experience from different jurisdictions to enrich discussion and debate in class.

You will have the opportunity to critically explore pressing development, environmental and financial stability concerns arising from the globalisation of the world economy in a genuinely international atmosphere.

The knowledge and skills gained on this course are suitable for careers in government, international organizations, law firms and NGOs concerned with international development, trade, investment and finance.

These and many other problems, their increasing complexity, their positioning at the border between economics and management and their placement in international contexts have been the backbone of the steadily growing demand for International Economic Consulting services. Large multinational corporations, regional and national policy makers, international organisations (like the World Bank, the EU and the OECD) and a growing number of non-profit interest groups require sound economic analyses and feasibility studies for an impressive range of issues and industrial sectors.

The MSc in Economics and Business Administration - International Economic Consulting – which we have developed in close cooperation with major players of the industry – is organised to prepare students for various job functions within this context. The programme will provide you with up-to-date theoretical knowledge required for applied economic analyses; relevant quantitative and empirical methods suitable for sectoral studies, policy impact analyses and forecasting; the training and concepts required for the implementation of national and international project consulting and, last but not least, introduce you to an exiting international environment.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

PREREQUISITE COURSES

Introductory Methods in Economic Consulting
This course introduces widely applicable quantitative methods with a special focus on their relevance for policy analysis. The main aim of the course is to introduce and apply relatively simple methods and models that can be used for econometric analysis of empirical questions that inevitably arise when project evaluations are performed.

Advanced Methods in Economic Consulting
A rigorous evaluation of public programs and policies often requires sophisticated quantitative methods to obtain reliable estimates of the effects of the programs. Furthermore, the analysis and assessment of the economic consequences also involves estimation of the costs and benefits. Hence, a thorough knowledge of advanced applied econometric methods is necessary to solve many of the complicated economic consulting problems.

Advanced Industrial Economics
This course is concerned with the theoretical and empirical understanding of the intensity of competition across industries and its effect on prices, quantities, quality choice, efficiency and market structure. It also studies the need of public intervention by describing the economics of competition policy.

Organisational Economics and Strategy
This course studies how firms create a competitive advantage and maintain it, and analyses strategic choices regarding the boundaries of the firm, the incentive mechanisms and the organisational structure that will best serve their strategies.

Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) or Project Evaluation as it is sometimes referred to, is an essential tool in economic consulting. The purpose of CBA is to facilitate better decision-making. It ensures that resources are effectively allocated by estimating the monetary values - as far as this is possible - of all the benefits and costs to society of alternative projects, typically public investment projects. Cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness are also central elements within the context of budgetary and political considerations as parts of social evaluation of investments.

SPECIALISATION COURSES

International Economic Integration gives a broad understanding of the forces and effects of globalisation through technological and policy changes. Based on the theory of international economics we examine integration as driven by organisations like e.g. the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the EU. The ability to put institutional knowledge into operation in an economic analytical context is a key element in working with government agencies, international institutions and many non-profit organisations on issues such as changes in trade rules or EU policies.

Developing and Emerging Economies
The growing wealth of the world is distributed unevenly. This is a central challenge for policy makers and a field of growing demand for informed economic advice. The course will focus on the opportunities and conditions for economic growth in developing and emerging economies and provide you with an understanding of the underlying economic mechanisms.

Applied Economic Consulting
Would it be a good idea to attract the Olympics to Denmark? These and many other questions come down to economics. What is the total impact, what are the involved costs and benefits, how do you forecast primary and secondary effects? This course simulates the entire process surrounding a real-world economic consulting problem, including an introduction to various project management tools.

In the third semester you can choose elective courses within your areas of interest. The courses can either be taken at Aarhus BSS during the semester, at AU Summer University or at one of our more than 300 partner universities abroad. You can also participate in internship programmes either in Denmark or abroad.

The fourth semester is devoted to the final thesis. You may choose the topic of the thesis freely and so get a chance to concentrate on and specialise in a specific field of interest. We encourage students to work on topics that are related to international economic consulting and/or are performed in cooperation with a consulting company or a governmental or international institution. The thesis may be written in collaboration with another student or it may be the result of your individual effort. When the thesis has been submitted, it is defended before the academic advisor as well as an external examiner.
