Applied Global Practice (Management) at Winchester uses key skills within international management, international relations and global studies to identify solutions to key global issues. Students explore global issues and management skills common in international business, international organisations, Non-Governmental Organisations, charities, and public and voluntary bodies.
Students explore a range of global issues covering the world economy, international institutions (such as the UN System), development, security, markets, the environment, aid, peacekeeping, diplomacy (commercial and political) and corporate social
responsibility. The emphasis is on the management of global issues - corporate governance, energy insecurity, food insecurity, poverty reduction and international security.
Students use international project management as a tool to manage a range of global issues. Projects include international aid relief, conflict resolution and regeneration projects.
Students can specialise, for example, in climate change, country risk analysis, economic development, regeneration and poverty reduction by electing to focus on a subject specialism.

- Health and/or Environment
