Erasmus Mundus GLOCAL Scholarships For International Students 2024

Global Markets, Local Creativities” (GLOCAL) is an International Masters degree taught over 2 years by a consortium of 7 world class and internationally renowned universities.

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 programme highlights the importance of historical and social context in which economic development, public policy and business strategies take place. This two-year academic 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 with companies and public policy organisations.

Depending on which pathway you choose, you will take between eight and ten core and around eight optional courses delivered as a mix of lectures and seminars, and you will study at 3 of the GLOCAL partner universities. The programme also includes opportunities for internships and industrial placements.

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, 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.

The GLOCAL programme is dedicated to equality in all its activities. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and seek to create a learning environment that is free from discrimination and unfair treatment.  We fully engage with and subscribe to the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion principles and policies of the University of Glasgow, which can be found here.
