Political Economy of Emerging Markets (MSc) DID
King’s International Development Institute (IDI) The 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.
The 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.

MA Globalisation, Business and Sustainable Development
School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) The process of globalisation is central to an understanding of the contemporary world. The nature of this process and its implications for international development are hotly debated and you’ll tackle key questions including:
- Is globalisation leading to increasing international inequality and poverty, or does the expansion of international trade in goods and services provide new opportunities for developing countries?
- How can we make sense of emergent trends such as fair trade, social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility and sustainable consumption?
- Does globalisation call for a radical overhaul of existing international, national and local institutions?
- And why is it so difficult to solve global environmental problems such as climate change?
Gain comprehensive knowledge in the field of globalisation, business and sustainable development and equip yourself with the necessary skills to pursue a career in this fascinating area. You’ll integrate different disciplinary perspectives to analyse the economic, political, social and environmental dimensions of globalisation. You’ll consider the resistance to globalisation and how this has played out in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
This course adopts a unique interdisciplinary approach, making UEA the perfect place to help you gain that all-important competitive edge.
