The module will be as discursive and as practical as possible. Each session will be divided into four parts: Part 1 is a warm-up discussion on Global Strategy News introduced by individuals based on their reading of the financial press that week or indeed historically. In Part 2, the weekly lecture will be presented and discussed. In the final section Part 3, the selected case studies for that week will be discussed.
