Course summary

Overview

Business is now conducted on a global scale. This means organisations need marketing professionals with an international mindset and the ability to have an impact wherever in the world they operate.

On this MA International Marketing Master's degree course, you'll build business acumen while you develop a comprehensive and rigorous understanding of international marketing practice.

You'll learn about core marketing theories and models, and cover topics such as global marketing strategy, international brand communications, social media marketing, and web analytics.

You'll also have the chance to work on projects with the local business community, and spend time immersed in another culture on an international study trip.

When you graduate, you'll have knowledge, skills and experience necessary to develop marketing strategies for international businesses, making you an invaluable hire for any organisation. You could use your qualification to work abroad and in organisations engaged in business across international boundaries and cultures.

  • Get a grounding in marketing principles and theories
  • Study all aspects of marketing including branding, social media marketing and consumer analytics

Marketing opportunities exist across all industry sectors – private, public and voluntary. These can range from the financial, consumer and information technology industries to not-for-profit organisations, such as charities, local government and higher education institutions.
