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.

Máster Globalización, Desarrollo y Cooperación
Món-3, Facultad de Ciencias Económicas (Món-3) El mundo del siglo XXI ofrece unas terribles asimetrías entre riqueza y pobreza, seguridad y conflictos, progreso y deterioro medioambiental, etc. La globalización económica ha afectado irremisiblemente a los otros ámbitos de la existencia social, configurando definitivamente un sistema económico mundial en el que las brechas entre sus centros y sus periferias no parecen sino reproducirse eternamente.
En este contexto de desigualdad económica, social y territorial, el desarrollo y la cooperación, aunque en continua transformación para adaptarse a los nuevos tiempos, siguen siendo dos polos de referencia en cualquier discurso estratégico de futuro, si es que ese futuro ha de ser posible para toda la humanidad.
Este título propio de la Universidad de Barcelona (60 créditos ECTS), organizado conjuntamente con la Fundación Món-3 y la Fundación Solidaritat UB, pretende seguir formando, como lo ha hecho desde 1989, especialistas que puedan intervenir directamente en la construcción de unas estrategias de desarrollo y unas relaciones de cooperación que apuntalen un mundo posible de solidaridad y bienestar, respetuoso con la naturaleza, esperanzador para las generaciones futuras y necesariamente distinto al actual.
