International Marketing MSc


Course Description

This is a conversion programme for applicants without previous knowledge or experience in marketing, but who wish to particularly explore the theory, principles and practice of marketing in the context of a global market environment and the challenges of marketing across countries and cultures.

This programme is accredited by The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).

For recent graduates and practising managers already familiar with basic marketing concepts, please also see our Marketing Communications MSc and Strategic Marketing and Consulting MSc programmes.

Programme details

The 12 month masters degree programme begins at the end of September. Initially you will spend time developing your understanding of core principles, theory and practice in marketing management, marketing research and marketing strategy and planning. Case studies will explore the particular applications of concepts in an international marketing context. You will also take a compulsory module exploring the principles, theory and practice of international marketing strategy, including approaches to international market selection, entry mode, and planning the marketing mix globally and/or locally. You will also study a compulsory module on Cross-Cultural Communication to help appreciate the challenges and strategies for effective communication when managing in an international context.

Beyond the core modules, the programme offers a wide choice of elective modules. You will be able to specialise in the areas of marketing that you feel will best prepare you for your chosen career path.
