The Emerging Economies & International Development MSc offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on emerging economies. This programme covers subjects such as development theory, political economy, geography and social policy. Students can focus on particular countries and regions. It offers a distinctive approach to the study of development by focusing on rising economic powers and some of the questions surrounding their emergence as key players in global politics and the economy. Reviewing economic development theory is the focus of this course in order to ask whether emerging economies offer a new model or models of development. Students will examine the strategies that they have adopted to promote development, how inclusive and sustainable or enduring these new strategies are and how emerging markets solve the difficult problems of promoting growth over the longer term. While investigating this last question, how these countries handle the development and diffusion of technology, how they manage trade and financial flows, how they balance the role of the state and the market, and how they deal with problems of institutional underdevelopment and weak systems of law and accountability will be discussed throughout this course.
