La economía global es un concepto complejo y que supone un constante desafío. Este Máster en Economía Global, impartido por expertos de prestigio internacional en sus respectivos campos, aclara de una vez por todas las complejidades intrínsecas de este campo y los desafíos a éste vinculados. Este programa es único en su campo ya que no requiere tener un título universitario en economía o estudios empresariales previos para poder solicitar una plaza.
This programme asks you to engage with a number of fundamental questions:
- What does the global economy look like?
- What are the patterns and directions of international trade, investment and migration?
- How has the global economy developed over time?
- What is the impact of globalisation on how people live their lives?
- What opportunities and challenges exist in the global economy?
- What is the role of governments: at regional, national and supra-national levels; in mediating or regulating the global economy?
- You will gain a broad understanding of current economic and business policy issues in the context of a rapidly changing and dynamic global environment; and a secure and critical grasp of the extent, causes and implications of a more fully integrated world economy, which equips you to play key leadership roles in corporate, non-governmental organisations or policy-driven environments.
- You will benefit from the extensive use of a range of social science approaches, techniques and vocabulary: including those derived from economics, management, law and political science; but no prior specialist training or expertise is required.
- You will be taught by a unique grouping of highly talented academics whose interests span the disciplines of business, economics, politics, social science and social policy, but whose core mission is to provide real-world as well as historical context to help develop understanding of current issues and problems.
MSc: 12 months full-time; 24 months part-time

A leading research centre
We are a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading UK research universities, and we’re striving to change the world with our expertise. Our annual research grants and contracts income totals more than £128m, which puts us in the UK’s top 10 earners for research. It also means that we can make important discoveries, whether that’s finding a way to detect malaria in minutes, or contributing to the biggest particle physics experiment in the world: the Large Hadron Collider.
Excellence in teaching
Our research-led approach is one of the reasons why a degree from the University of Glasgow is so prized, but our students also benefit from opportunities to study abroad, improve their employability, take part in work placements and explore a wide range of social activities. As a result, we welcome scholars from 120 countries around the world. The 2011 International Student Barometer ranks us 1st in the UK for student satisfaction, and 90% of our final year undergraduates report satisfaction with their experiences. Our students graduate equipped with the skills they need to compete in a global workplace, and with friendships and networks that last a lifetime.
Working with others
We know we cannot succeed alone, which is why we work with partners and friends in Glasgow, Scotland and beyond. Whether we’re sharing expertise on climate change and disease prevention in developing countries, or offering investment to kickstart new collaborations with growing companies in Scotland, the benefits of our ever-expanding network of friendships and partnerships are wide-ranging and reciprocal.
