Business, Politics and Culture

The aim of this course is to explore the interplay between business and politics, and its impact on the ways in which we live and work. In order to do so, the course will provide an overview of the changing relationship between business and politics in recent decades.

 The overall aim of the course is to summarize and critically discuss the complex relation between business, culture and politics in contemporary society.

To foster the students’ critical abilities, the course will focus on essay writing. With the purpose of developing students’ writing and thinking abilities, students are assessed and receive feedback from both teachers and peers continuously throughout the course.
