Reasons to study an MSc Management Economics & International Relations at Aberdeen:
Many undergraduates focus on a single discipline, but the world of management, economics and international relations requires an inter-disciplinary approach
In today's work, no middle/senior manager can ignore these disciplines.
A decision-maker needs understanding of how economic decisions affect politics and vice versa, and all have to manage in a global context.
Many graduates need to have an understanding of all three of these disciplines to understand what the current environment is, in which their companies are operating.
Our programme is taught by experienced specialist staff drawn from the relevant disciplines. All have published books and articles on their own specialist subjects.
You will develop a strong inter-disciplinary foundation in the principles, concepts , theories and empirical reality of some aspect of management, economics and international relations and the connections between them.
This is particularly true given the complex environment that business and governments operate in.
Students will benefit from studying at a traditional University which has been disseminating knowledge and understanding of key concepts and practises for over 500 years.
Aberdeen is also a 21st century University in the way it teaches, its infrastructure and its information strategy.
All of the disciplines involved are part of their relevant British, European and world bodies.
The purpose of this course is to allow its participants to examine for themselves the links between International Relations and the contributing disciplines of management and economics. Students will be able to draw on well-established modules currently available in all three disciplines in each of the two semesters of taught courses.
