MA Intercultural Business Communication will be of interest to those wishing to work in careers related to, or who have already worked in international business and management contexts. It will also be relevant to those who wish to become more successful in understanding communication or who are cultural specialists in their own professions.

The postgraduate course raises awareness of theories and practise of communication, culture, discourse and society and their applications in business interactions. The distinctiveness of the programme lies in the focus of the course’s principal components: emphasis on intercultural and communication theories applied to work-related contexts in International Business; multi-disciplinary pathways; and Research Training. 


You will receive input from a mixture of lectures, seminars and workshops. A student-centred approach is emphasised in the teaching and learning process.

We use a variety of assessment procedures including essays, reports, presentations, projects and examinations. The assessment methods and criteria we use are linked to the learning outcomes specified for each module.

Course Outline

You have to complete a total of nine modules of which the Dissertation or Work Placement Project (based on a work placement of at least 6 weeks or enterprise project) are double modules. Six modules are compulsory and three are option modules.


At the end of the course, you will have acquired knowledge and understanding of theories and practise of organisational communication, intercultural business communication, increased cultural competence, discourse awareness; developed an awareness of how cultural differences can create conflict and resolution; and learned skills for undertaking independent research.
