Degree: MSc in Economics and Business Administration
ECTS credits: 120
Duration: two years

The programme will give you the skills to analyse markets and industries and the economic challenges facing private business, public institutions and the development in countries and regions. It will provide you with important perspectives for understanding an increasingly globalised economy.

Understanding economic mechanisms is vital for the success of business and the design of public policy and this master’s programme offers a thorough and comprehensive education in economic theory and econometrics. You will be equipped to analyse core economic questions such as: What are the effects of the financial crisis? Why are some mergers not profitable? Is taxing wealth a good idea? How fast should oil resources be exploited?

You will learn what motivates and drives decisions for individuals, companies, competitors and authorities - and what determines prices, returns and economic conditions.

SPECIALIST AREAS

The programme provides students with basic analytical skills in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics.

Macroeconomics: covers areas such as business cycles, inflation and economic growth in a national and global perspective, including monetary and fiscal policy. Microeconomics: focuses on consumer behaviour and strategic interaction between companies in markets with imperfect competition and on how information and uncertainty affect decision-making. Econometrics: applies statistical methods to economic data in order to analyse economic themes with a focus on regression analysis and extensive use of practical lab exercises.

The programme also offers also a range of courses that allow you to focus on subject areas you find particularly interesting, such as:
Behavioural Economics
Industrial Economics
Development Economics
Labour Economics
Resource and Environmental Economics

Research Distinction
In addition we offer methodological courses at advanced level for students who want to elaborate their analytical skills. The advanced courses will qualify for a master's with "Research Distinction". Students who are planning to pursue a PhD are encouraged to select at least two advanced courses.

Degree: MSc in Economics and Business Administration
ECTS credits: 120
Duration: two years

Strategy and Management focuses on how managers and employees can develop businesses to become efficient and competitive whilst maintaining corporate social responsibility. How can firms create value and develop a competitive advantage? How can business leaders through their employees carry out necessary strategic modifications? What is good management and what fosters productive employees?

The study of strategy is fundamentally about understanding why some businesses succeed while others do not. Within this framework, the Strategy and Management programme focuses on two sets of fundamental questions that illuminate this overarching theme in different ways:
What creates differences in performance between businesses and industries and why do such differences persist over time, and how can firms use this knowledge to create effective strategies?
How can firms—through leading and developing individuals, groups, and organisations—implement strategies or carry out complex change processes?

SPECIALIST AREAS

The Strategy and Management programme comprises two different areas of expertise/themes, "Strategic Analysis" and "Organisation and Leadership".

The Strategic Analysis theme examines theories, mechanisms, and practical frameworks that can be used to understand why differences in performance both between and within markets can arise, how and why such differences can persist over time, and how this affects strategic decisions in companies.

The Organisation and Leadership theme examines the business itself, with a focus on the challenges business leaders meet when they plan to implement or deploy strategies, how one should lead and develop the business’s human resources, and how one can carry out complex organisational changes.

Research Distinction
In addition, we offer methodological courses at advanced level for students who want to elaborate their analytical skills. The advanced courses will qualify for a master's with "Research Distinction". Students who are planning to pursue a PhD are encouraged to select at least two advanced courses.

About the course

Do you want to report the news from the most interesting and important parts of the world? Are you committed to a career in journalism but need the professional skills?

From the moment you start our International Journalism MA course you will learn to deliver high quality video, audio, online and print journalism.

The International Journalism MA is designed to provide our students with digital multiplatform journalism skills and advanced understanding of the context of journalism in the fast changing world of news media. This is a challenging, employment orientated course in a major London university focussed on international reporting.

We believe the sooner you get practical experience of a real journalism workplace the sooner you will be ready to join the industry. All our students find placements in the news industry while they are with us. The course features a synthesis of practical and theoretical skills contextualising different forms of journalistic practice within a framework of technological, political and cultural change.

As a research university we are able to offer small course groups so we provide a bespoke service where we know and advise each student individually in their skills and journalism career. We choose students from all over the world.

This course is suitable for:

A recent or mature graduate from a wide range of degree disciplines wanting a career in journalism or to develop a research interest in international news media.

A mature student without a first degree, but with some relevant professional experience. We consider each individual on their merits.

Aims

You will acquire the skills and knowledge to immediately enter the journalism industry in an international context, and will be equipped to undertake further postgraduate level research.

You will gain comprehensive and sophisticated understanding of the advanced academic study of international journalism, and the techniques and principles applied in practice.

You will be provided with the relevant expertise and learning environment to support your critical and practical engagement with issues at the heart of analysing and practising international journalism.

[email protected] employment rates are excellent, with graduates working for news organisations like BBC World Service, Norway’s DTK TV News, Italy’s Il Mattino and London’s China Weekly.

Course Content

This strongly vocational programme is distinctive in allowing students to develop their own journalistic practice at the same time as learning about the impact of technological change, cultural developments and political issues on different forms of global journalism.

Particular attention will be paid to the global versus the local, which will be examined through practical assignments as well as media ownership, the legal context, issues pertaining to journalistic ethics, and the role of journalism in the international political process.

The programme builds on the success of the School of Arts' postgraduate provision by providing a broad-based programme, within a credit framework, offering you the opportunity for specialisation. It consists of a common core of study in journalism, with an offer of specialist study in print/online or broadcast journalism, which will facilitate student entry into different aspects of the industry.

This is particularly relevant in the context of a converging media industry requiring multi-skilling and the ability to adapt to new media environments.

The programme will be delivered by a combination of academics based at Brunel (who also have considerable journalistic experience) and visiting journalists and legal experts working in key positions within the media industries.

You will greatly benefit from the College's excellent links with the journalism, broadcasting and publishing industries, and will be offered the opportunity for work placement.

Assessments will take the form of practical projects and tasks, essays, exams, case studies, presentations, reflexive reports and dissertations.

Assessing students’ knowledge and understanding of theoretical debates, hermeneutic skills and understanding of the historical and institutional context of different international journalism practices will be undertaken via written essays.

The assessments covering these cognitive skills are practical exercises, written work and productions which test the acquisition of practical skills and strategies; essays which test theoretical and historical knowledge; and the final journalism project (and accompanying written analysis) which requires a summation of the critical, creative and practical skills learned during the programme.

The Major Project will test students’ theoretical knowledge and practical skills (with supporting reflexive practice) to A-Level commensurate with a Master's qualification. Dissertations are usually agreed in advance with the supervising tutor.

One of the first EdD programmes to be established in the UK and offering a range of pathways, the EdD at Exeter is offered by modular study and is specifically directed to professional development through research. Read more
One of the first EdD programmes to be established in the UK and offering a range of pathways, the EdD at Exeter is offered by modular study and is specifically directed to professional development through research. The programme is of particular relevance to experienced practitioners in education from the UK, EU or overseas and the academic tutors recognise the particular needs, interests and policy contexts of students who are also professionals in their own right.

The EdD is a ‘Professional Doctorate’ which is equivalent in level to a PhD, but includes a modular phase as well as the thesis. It is particularly suited to professionals who aim to link research closely with their existing professional practice. The PhD is more suited to those planning to become professional researchers.

The taught element of the EdD programme introduces different understandings of, and approaches to, educational research, including distinctive methodologies and methods. You can explore, in depth, a particular field of study, together with its implications for your own professional practice.

Pathways include: Generic Pathway; Special Needs and Inclusive Education (SNIE) pathway; Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) pathway; and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in Dubai pathway.

The EdD will enable you to:

- reflect on, and experiment with, new concepts and ideas, professional understandings of practice, and research skills - all within a safe but challenging environment amongst a supportive community of peers;
- review and evaluate research, theory, policy and practice; examine and challenge your own professional practice and its relationship with theory and policy;
- integrate recent and applicable theory with the latest developments in professional practice;
- make strong links between your assignments/research thesis and professional practice and service needs;
- design and carry out your own ethically-informed research;
- network and share experiences with a worldwide community of professionals and policy-makers practising in a broad range of educational contexts and fields related to education;
- increase your knowledge about other professionals and their organisations and thereby gain a wider perspective on the environment in which you work;
- potentially enhance your opportunities for career progression.

Programme structure

The programme is divided into two ‘phases’. The first ‘pre-thesis phase’ (equivalent to 1 year of full-time study or 2 years of part-time study) offers specialist research-led modules which provide access to current thinking about key issues pertaining to research in your professional field and provide the opportunity to reflect on and experiment with new concepts and ideas, professional understandings of practice, and research skills within a challenging research environment amidst a supportive community of peers. This is followed by a ‘thesis phase’ (equivalent to 2 years of full-time study or 4 years of part-time study) in which you complete a thesis that makes a substantial contribution to knowledge and/or practice within a professional field.

The Doctor of Education programme offers specialisms in the following fields: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL); Special Needs and Inclusive Education (SNIE); Generic Route, suitable for professionals and policy-makers from across public and private sectors

Generic pathway

The generic EdD route brings together professionals and policy-makers from across sectors that have traditionally been, and mostly remain, separated.
These include:
• early childhood education and care
• schools and further education colleges
• adult and community education
• higher education
• medical education
• health and social care

It encourages the growth of a community of professional scholars with varied but complementary interests in exploring theories, policies and practices associated with education, training, teaching and learning at different stages in the life course, together with the complex, overlapping roles of professionals engaged in these processes. http://www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate/research-degrees/education/eddoctoral/generic/

Special Needs and Inclusive Education (SNIE) pathway

The EdD Special Needs and Inclusive Education focuses on professional and theoretical knowledge and understanding in the area of special and inclusive education. You join a research community of professional and academic scholars and peers with varied but complementary interests in exploring theories, policies and practices associated with special and inclusive education at different stages in the life course and in different contexts. Past and current doctoral students include teachers, school leaders, university lecturers, speech and language therapists, other health professionals and medical educators.

Our international community of researchers has an excellent record of winning external funding, and our research centres provide structure and support, promoting collaboration and impact. The Centre for Special Educational Needs and Disability (http://socialsciences.exeter.ac.uk/education/research/centres/specialeducationalneeds/) is interested in educational aspects (in widest sense) of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (in various senses of these terms). http://www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate/research-degrees/education/eddoctoral/snie/

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) pathway

The EdD TESOL aims to provide experienced senior professionals within the field of language teaching with an opportunity to study at advanced level for a doctoral degree by means of a taught programme plus a thesis. The course involves an in-depth examination of issues related to language learning and teaching and language teacher education. It also provides a solid grounding in research methodology appropriate for undertaking research at doctoral level within these fields.

We are committed to and actively engaged in undertaking research into a number of different aspects of TESOL and our students have published in a wide variety of journals. We are a very multicultural course, with students from over 30 countries including Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bahrain, Botswana, Cameroon, Cayman Islands, Canada, China, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, England, Finland, France, Greece, Holland, Iraq, Ireland, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mexico, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, South Africa, Sudan, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United States of America and Wales.
