Business with International Management and Marketing

Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused Masters degree that will enhance your employability? This two-year course develops skills in business and international management while also offering a pathway in marketing. The first year is the same as MSc Business with International Management. You'll then undertake a second year that develops the 'Marketing' pathway. Specialist modules will cover advertising and marketing communications strategy as well as interactive and relationship marketing. You'll develop your research skills through a Masters dissertation or an investigative consultancy project related to an issue faced by a real client. You'll also explore contemporary issues in management research. There is no requirement to have studied business, international management or marketing at undergraduate level. The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was 'Business School of the Year' at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.
