The MSc Global Corporations and Policy (GCP) programme specifically addresses the requirements of those seeking a comprehensive theoretical and practical understanding of the role and dynamics of large corporations in the global economy and international affairs. The programme aims to prepare students for a variety of roles in government departments, regulatory agencies, international organisations (such as the OECD or WTO) industry bodies and NGOs and as advisors, managers, researchers or project professionals with multinational corporations, trade unions and advocacy organisations. The programme has a multi-disciplinary structure and draws on the teaching and research strengths across SOAS including International Politics, Law, Economics and area studies (especially of Asia, Africa and the Middle East) as well as a wide range of languages. The programme is delivered by the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD) in association with the FCO's Diplomatic Academy, using a combination of multi-disciplinary teaching, cutting-edge research and public discussion of diplomacy and international politics in a globalised world. Students will gain an excellent understanding of the development and activities of Multinational Enterprises (MNE) and their regulation from economic and legal perspectives.
