Course summary

The Bachelor of Science in Global Political Science (BSc Hons) is a three-year, full-time course with three pathways – one in Diplomacy, one in Leadership and the other in Trade. Unique in its combination, this course introduces students to the complex relationship between the worlds of business, politics and international relations and prepares them to lead global organisations through the critical application of knowledge gained and a sound understanding of both the hard and soft skills needed to navigate between them. The Leadership specialisation has been created for students who believe that a better world may be shaped by people with a higher level of integrity, preparation and self-awareness, and have decided to dedicated themselves to pave the way. The mixture of history, theory and technical modules will provide the background information, working vocabulary and repertoire of roles and skills to take each participant towards the realisation of their professional dream in areas such as Corporate Relations, Diplomacy, International Project Management, International Public policy, Multinational Consultancy and Global Trade. The two required internships may be in one of the affiliated companies seen below in the ESE’s Internship Programme section – these are only some of the 1500 companies with whom we are affiliated. Students will also have the added advantage of being able to pursue their programme in any of the ESE campuses, whether London, Milan, Florence, Madrid or Rome. They will have the unique opportunity to transfer between campuses on a per-term or per-year basis, experiencing the same programme in multiple international contexts and cultures.

Assessment method

Assessment methods are designed not only to grade performance but to motivate learners and influence their learning strategies. Formative feedback will be offered for contributory assessments and other activities that take place during the course of the module. Also, inter- sessional tasks which students will be asked to undertake will be reflective not only of the nature of the examination questions but also of real workplace scenarios in order to enhance their professional skills. Formative feedback will focus on ways of improving work and will typically be offered in a number of ways appropriate for the kind of task undertaken by the student, including: • In person, either individually, or collectively during seminars, workshops, or tutorials. • Via personal email • Via the virtual learning environment. Assessment strategies are devised on a course by course basis according to the nature of the material to be covered, and can include anything from in-class quizzes and exams to individual or group projects, essays and case studies.
