Applications are welcome for the University of Glasgow Scholarship for the International Master in Global Markets and Local Creativities (GLOCAL) in 2021.

International Master in Global Markets and Local Creativities is an integrated global program encompassing the theory, history, institutions, and cultures of worldwide capitalism. It offers viewpoints on the globalized economy, concentrating on creative and cultural economies/industries, urban environments that nurture creativity, entrepreneurship, innovation, and business cultures. All teaching is in English.

The intention of the program is to look at how local places (clusters, cities and regions) and local actors (entrepreneurs, organizations and policymakers) create local competitiveness under international market circumstances. This program highlights the significance of historical and social context in which economic growth, public policy and business strategies come about. This two-year academic program furnishes you with the critical skills to comprehend the overlapping complementarity of the global and local, but also offers opportunities for practical experience with organizations and public policy organisations.

The degree is perfect for exceptionally talented candidates looking for a career in urban or public policy organisations, international consultancies, multinational corporations, cultural and creative industries, or other non-profit establishments.  Candidates will be pushed to explore a range of interdisciplinary viewpoints on the process and experience of globalisation from a place-based viewpoint, in particular of cities, creative industries, growth and local cultures of entrepreneurship.

University of Glasgow Scholarship award can be granted to candidates from any part of the world; however, at most three with the same nationality will be awarded in the same cohort under the same category. The scholarship award’s terms depend on the candidate’s nationality and residence.
