Graduate Institute launches free online course (MOOC)
Globalisation, the trend towards worldwide economic, financial, trade, and communications integration, has massively impacted society past and present. The topic, which dominates current political and economic discourse, affects everyone who cares about, or who wishes to shape, our planet’s future.
Globalisation, the Graduate Institute’s first massive online open course (Mooc), analyses the evolution, impact and future of economic globalisation. It will be delivered by Richard Baldwin, Professor of International Economics, co-Director of the Institute’s Centre on Trade and Economic Integration, and author of the world-acclaimed book, The Great Convergence: Information Technology and the New Globalization (2016).
The course, which is given in partnership with social learning platform FutureLearn, is designed for students or professionals with an interest in international affairs and international development. It will run over four weeks, combining video lectures, articles, discussions and interactive assignments. Registration is free and learners will be able to access the platform anytime.
A second course, Global Governance, delivered by Cédric Dupont, Professor of International Relations/Political Science will open in November 2017.
