If you are interested in the maintenance of business and matters of the state within times of conflict, security issues and coercion this programme combines Strategic Studies with Management.  You understand from a historical basis about a range of industries and their management of risk associated with conflict within different countries and regions of the world. You learn about the state actors, social and cultural complexities which provide secure economic trading conditions or a situation which needs to be constantly monitored and managed in order to trade effectively internationally. You combine Strategic Studies with Management Studies to give you wide ranging knowledge and analytical ability to not only manage risk associated with developing and maintaining business internationally within hostile environments but also provide a degree of leadership and decision making. You learn specific business communication and negotiation methods, strategy and its management, and strategic theory and management of innovation.

The degree not only gives you theory and analysis skills of world affairs and specific issues that challenge business constantly but it also gives you the ability to steer business and organisations through or round conflict. You may go on to work for specific multinational industries, rapidly growing companies that want to start up in specific countries, source from different countries or set up regionally around the world and you could be involved in providing strategic direction to growth internationally or managing business anywhere in the world.
