This MA builds on our long-established history in IPE, which continues today with the UK-leading, Department-hosted Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation.

By addressing both mainstream and critical approaches, you will be encouraged to think in a reflective and challenging way about issues such as the global financial crisis, gender politics and the environment.

A core module, Theories and Issues in International Political Economy, gives you a comprehensive introduction to the main theoretical approaches and most pressing political issues in the discipline. You can also choose from a selection of cutting-edge options in trade, finance, development and global governance.

Our graduate destinations include the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, JP Morgan and HM Treasury.
