Global Political Economy

The Global Political Economy certificate investigates the ever evolving field of global markets, global financial regulation, international banking, and how markets drive and are driven by global political and social processes.  Far from a strict economic analysis, the Division of Global Affairs Global Political Economy certificate approaches the attempts to identify cross-cutting issues including the development of global knowledge through technology transfers and innovation sharing that are part of the global business complex. Courses explore the relationship of international financial institutions and markets to  issue areas such as international law, conflict, human rights, and the environment.
