Course content

Our Masters in Intercultural Communication for Business and the Professions provides you with a wide range of in-depth knowledge and skills relating to intercultural communication. Its distinctive feature is that it enables you to focus on aspects of intercultural communication that are relevant to people working either in business (in such areas such as marketing, management or human resources) or in other professions (such as NGOs, education or diplomacy).

Our core modules focus on culture and communication. They develop your ability to analyse, explain and investigate effective communication across cultures, as well as nurture your practical skills in intercultural interaction. Our option modules enable you to select particular areas which you want to specialise in, according to your own intellectual interests or career aspirations.

The masters programme concludes with an empirical piece of research, which will allow you to not only put your knowledge to practice, but further hone your practical skills in carrying out systematic research, which translated into transferable skills frequently required in multiple industries, such as Marketing, Public Relations & Media, Consulting, Management/HR as well as Education. This final stage of the programme also equips you with skills crucial for a career in academia, i.e. seeking to undertake a PhD.
