Strategic Studies and Management

The programme scrutinises the nexus between salient, real-world strategic, management and business issues. It delivers clear understanding of the contemporary nexus between the various uses of coercion by states and non-state actors and the complexities of managing large and small organisations in the modern governmental, economic and business environment. It will be linked with the network of Strategic Studies alumni throughout the international system.
