Internationalization: Economic, Commercial, Legal and Political Aspects


The master's degree in Internationalization is designed to serve the growing demand for knowledge of and professionals capable of responding to the complexities posed by globalization. It is an overtly interdisciplinary programme that combines elements of economics, business, law and politics to provide an understanding of how to manage new global realities and rules. The course is addressed to postgraduate students with a basic level of training in this field and is also open to applicants with other academic profiles who are interested in the many implications of internationalization.
International relations give rise to increasingly complex areas of knowledge encompassing profound changes in the rules of economic, business, legal, social and political activities. This complexity generates new educational requirements and growing demand for training based on new realities and emerging trends, which is the fundamental motivation for this master's programme.
Moreover, the challenges implicit in addressing the combination of 'globalization' and 'crisis' emphasize the importance of an international outlook in driving recovery and the improved global positioning of many economies and societies. Detailed examination of these concepts is therefore required and should be achieved by providing people with the analytical and professional skills to understand the innovative requirements of global activity and preparing them to devise and propose new and effective solutions.
This master's degree also tackles the interdisciplinary dynamics of global problems and challenges, in which elements of economics and business interact in a highly complex way with socio-political, legal and cultural phenomena.
This master's degree course offers multidisciplinary training for internationalization professionals operating in a complex global environment.
