  • Overview

    London is a pre-eminent world metropolis. Indeed, based on its location, international reach, dynamism, diversity and openness, it is (together only with New York) accorded ‘global city’ status. It is a growing city with extensive and expanding opportunities for businesses seeking a base for their operations or for individuals seeking to build their careers in a wide range of sectors and occupations. This module uses London as its ‘field of enquiry’ for exploring both global issues – involving financial services, high technology industries, international migration and tourism – and local concerns (like transport, employment opportunities and city ‘governance’) that affect the attractiveness and ease of doing business in London.
