International relations have come into existence ever since Antiquity when people first organised themselves in city-states. In recent times, when information has become easily transmissible, enabled organisations and businesses to grow and spread and become multinational and some have come to generate revenue that exceeds the GDP of many nations, permitting these organisations to employ extraordinary influence over international politics. The technological revolution and the rise of social media have further linked global audiences in ways that were next to impossible prior. Information is now available a fingertip away, nearly in real-time. Governments and businesses alike are now pursuing professional individuals, skilled in international relations and diplomacy, who can facilitate them measuring up to the needs and challenges of this shift towards globalisation.
The MBA International Relations and Diplomacy will prepare students with the skill set required to understand and confront the challenges and prospects of the contemporary global order, by enhancing the classic MBA with modules on Essentials of Risk Management, Digital Marketing and International Relations and Diplomacy.
The MBA programmes benefit greatly from the internationality derived from recruiting students from across the globe and drawing on tutors well qualified in their field.
