What will I learn?

This programme is awarded by University of London (UOL), UK and developed by the member institution, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

LSE is one of the foremost social science universities in the world. Since its foundation in 1895, it has acquired a worldwide reputation for the quality of its research – 50 percent of its research was rated world-leading and a further 37 percent internationally excellent in the most recent assessment of research quality in UK universities.

Who is this programme for:

This programme is designed for those who wish to pursue a career in private and public sectors that requires knowledge of international trends and development, cultural empathy, and an understanding of transnational changes.

The stereotypical engineering student is known to shy away from all things touchy-feely, keeping to expressions (pun intended) only the mathematically inclined would understand. However, we know for a fact that substantial numbers of such graduates tend to pursue careers outside the sphere of engineering, going to areas ‘softer’ in nature such as business and management.

Critical understanding of international issues

International Relations consider the role not only of states but also a wide range of actors on the world’s stage, from organisations to multinational corporations and from civil society groups to terrorist networks.

This programme engages you critically with the range of materials about contemporary international relations. You gain an understanding of the core literature and theoretical issues in the field of international relations.

It is suitable for those who wish to understand the international dimensions of their own chosen field, such as economics, politics or general management. It provides a framework for understanding the international aspects of world problems, from environmental degradation to trade conflicts to globalisation.
