Our Political Economy of Emerging Markets MSc offers a distinctive approach to the study of development. We focus on the political economy of emerging markets, especially national development strategies and the underlying politics and institutions. The course also covers subjects such as development theory, political economy, geography and management, and is flexible enough to allow you to focus on particular countries and regions.

Description

Our course provides you with high-quality post-graduate teaching and training in the analysis of emerging economies. It offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on rising economic powers with a particular focus on national development strategies, economic and political institutions, and the political processes that influence economic reforms. We are based at King’s Department of International Development, which enables us to draw on social scientific expertise from across other departments in the faculties of Social Sciences & Public Policy and Arts & Humanities as well as King’s Global Institutes. 

The course critically assesses economic development theory to ask whether emerging economies offer a new model or models of development. Our main focus is examining the strategies that emerging economies have adopted to promote development. This includes asking how sustainable or enduring these new strategies are and how emerging markets solve the difficult problems of promoting growth over the longer term. To answer this last question, we investigate how emerging economies deal with the development and diffusion of technology, manage trade and financial flows, balance the role of the state and the market, and tackle problems of institutional underdevelopment and weak systems of law and accountability

Course purpose

Our course provides you with high-quality graduate research training for seeking employment in the large development sector in the UK, other OECD countries and in emerging economies, consultancy organisations, private sector companies with global operations and government offices. It is ideal if you are an international student seeking specialist training and/or government employment. 

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, we will usually provide five hours of dissertation workshops, and six one-to-one or group meetings with supervisors. You will undertake 589 hours of independent study.

In each year 60 credits in taught modules should be taken (of which in year one at 20 credits should be a required module), and in Year 2 the dissertation (60 credits) is also taken. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

Assessment

We assess the majority of our modules through a 4,000-word essay, although other optional modules may differ. We will assess your dissertation through a proposal and a 12,000-word piece of writing.

The programme aims to help students understand how to do international business especially from developmental states. Read more

The programme aims to help students understand how to do international business especially from developmental states. It will help them understand the particular challenges faced in developing corporate strategy, attracting foreign direct investment and working in countries with very different cultures, institutions, laws and business practices.

If emerging markets are, by their very nature, in a state of flux, then already successful economies are characterised by a different kind of dynamic. And as the pace of globalisation accelerates, the need to understand the drivers of national and international economic and business success becomes ever more acute. That gives graduates of this MSc some very real career advantages.

The programme will suit those with a background in or experience of the commercial or financial worlds. It is useful for students from emerging economies who wish to bring themselves up to speed with contemporary thinking in corporate strategy, including technology and financial management and business economics, and of public policies dealing with pressing issues relating to development in general. It is equally useful for students from already established economies seeking to understand how businesses can take advantage of the globalisation of the world economy and the rapid development of these new economic powerhouses.

Students on the programme come from all over the world, looking for objective, in-depth insights into global business practice. The knowledge they gather helps them develop successful careers as consultants, managers or analysts in the broad arena of international business.

Programme structure

Learning will primarily be through lectures, set reading, class discussions, exercises, group-work assignments, problem solving in tutorials and case studies. Assessment methods include examinations, assignments, presentations or continuous assessment.

Learning outcomes

On completing your MSc you will gain:

  • Understanding of the key issues relating to the competitiveness of international business
  • Understanding of the key issues relating to international business from both a theoretical and business perspective *Appreciation of the dynamism of individual nations, and especially emerging markets including China, India and other transitional economies. *Techniques and skills to work effectively with companies on specific international business projects.

You’ll consider contemporary issues and debates during guest lectures with successful entrepreneurs, hearing first-hand about their experience of the latest topics. You’ll also develop your understanding of research methods in business and enterprise studies.

The course has a practical focus and you will work on a range of projects that allow you to gain real experience – you’ll create a new venture and work in a team to deliver a consultancy project for an entrepreneurial business.

In the final semester, you’ll complete a dissertation project on a research question of your choice - this can be used to explore your own ideas for a business venture or social enterprise, or look at how best to support or grow an existing firm.

You’ll also have a choice of optional modules in key areas of management and international business, including cross-cultural management, supply chain management and the emerging markets.

If you study part-time, you’ll study one day per week over 24 months and take only the compulsory modules, plus a dedicated module in applied enterprise. The part-time option enables existing entrepreneurs to continue to develop their own enterprise, whilst professionals and budding entrepreneurs can work alongside their studies.

Learning and teaching

We use a variety of different teaching methods such as lectures, seminars, tutorials, work-based learning, fieldwork and workshops. Independent study is also vital to this programme, allowing you to develop your skills and prepare for taught sessions and assessments.

The Enterprise Project module is one example of how practical learning and teaching is embedded in the programme. This gives students the chance to work closely with an entrepreneur and undertake a strategic developmental role within their business. For example, recent student Ratawan Tanadumrongsak completed a group project for Twinkl Ltd, an online business supplying education resources worldwide. You can read a case study about this project here.

Assessment

Assessment methods emphasise not just knowledge, but essential skills development too. You’ll be assessed using a range of techniques including exams, group projects, written assignments and essays, in-course assessment, group and individual presentations and reports.

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.
