Course content

Our MSc International Marketing will allow you to develop insights into marketing decision-making in a global cultural context. You will gain in-depth knowledge of marketing practice through modules such as Consumer Behaviour and Brand Management, alongside a comprehensive understanding of the global context through the International Business Strategy and International Marketing modules.

With reference to research findings to provide additional insights into the subject matter, the programme enables you to link theory and practice, to identify ethical practice and to engage in critical thinking and problem-focused decision-making that can be applied in a general international business setting.

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the MSc International Marketing is designed to suit both those with a marketing background and those who wish to embark on a career in marketing.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
