Specialisation: Emerging Market 

Most of the world’s economic growth is taking place in rising economic powers such as the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China) and other countries in Asia, Latin America, Africa and Eastern Europe. In this specialisation, you’ll use a multi-disciplinary approach to study these emerging economies and the new business opportunities associated with their growth. 

This specilisation is unique to this programme.  You will learn what drives the high growth in these markets, how they are evolving, where the next business opportunities will be, and how to make responsible management and policy decisions in these rapidly changing and sometimes fragile economies!
