Course content

The MSc Corporate and Marketing Communications degree is taught within Middlesex University Dubai’s Marketing, Branding and Tourism Department in the Business School. This is an exciting programme that will give the opportunity to explore contemporary themes in the theory and practice of corporate marketing communication, within an established and intellectually rigorous context and framework. Research continues to show that organisations are looking for marketing communication professionals who have not only theoretical understanding but also the skills and competences to apply this knowledge in real life. In response to this need, the MSc programme combines conceptual and theoretical thinking with the opportunity to develop practical insight and application.

The course allows students to choose from a range of optional modules which build upon the content of the core modules and explore more specialised and niche aspects of communications. Students will have options to choose from different aspects of communication, for instance, (a) focus on marketing communications; (b) consumers and stakeholders; (c) strategic communications approach. The course features a number of different modes of learning that range from traditional lectures and seminar sessions where students will engage with concepts and theories, explore key questions and carry out tasks such as devising and analysing marketing activity.

Information for international students

We understand that moving to another country can be a very daunting prospect for many students, especially if it is their first time away from their family, which is why we make it our priority to ensure that international students feel welcome, settled and part of the community.

The University has over 3,600 students from more than 100 nationalities, and we encourage students to embrace the cultures of others as well as sharing their own. Events such as ‘World Food Day’ and our highly anticipated ‘International Day’ enable our students to celebrate and promote the culture and traditions of their home countries.
