The School of English and the Nottingham University Business School have long been at the forefront of research and teaching in the area of communication and entrepreneurship.
This masters course provides an exciting opportunity to investigate communication in the context of entrepreneurship and business. The programme will introduce you to the multidisciplinary dimensions of professional communication, exploring in detail how linguistic analysis can illuminate and enhance communication in businesses and a range of other workplaces.
The course explores the role of communication in business-related human affairs using a variety of approaches, ranging from discourse analysis and interactional sociolinguistics to corpus linguistics. The key areas of marketing, project management, innovation management and entrepreneurship will be explored in modules offered by the Business School.
The course concludes with a research dissertation/project, jointly supervised by the School of English and University of Nottingham Business School, undertaken during the summer period.
