Global Markets, Local Creativities (GLOCAL)
See our new programme flyer here! GLOCAL Programme Flyer
This two-year International Master leverages the complementary and interdisciplinary expertise, resources and networks of four leading universities (The Consortium) in four innovative cities:
- Glasgow (United Kingdom)
- Barcelona (Spain)
- Rotterdam (the Netherlands)
- Göttingen (Germany)
The programme aims to examine how local places (clusters, cities and regions) and local actors (entrepreneurs, firms and policymakers) generate local competitiveness under global market conditions. This two-year programme equips you with the critical skills to make sense of the intersecting complementarity of the global and local but also provides opportunities for practical experience.
The degree is ideal for highly talented students seeking a career in urban or public policy organisations, multinational corporations, international consultancies, cultural and creative industries, media or other non-profit organisations. Students will be encouraged to explore a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives on the process and experience of globalisation from a place-based perspective, in particular of cities, creative industries, development and local cultures of entrepreneurship.
