Oxford Brookes University
International Business, Culture and Languages
The MA International Business, Culture and Languages is designed to enhance the academic and professional competence of graduates who aspire to work for a multinational company, business support organisation or international institution.
This course provides an intensive introduction to business studies together with the development of intercultural communication skills. It combines campus-based study with a work placement in the UK or abroad.
To qualify for the course, you will need to speak two languages (one of which must be English).
A good 1st degree. Applicants may be asked to include a recent piece of academic work (approximately 1000 words in English). A final decision about a candidate's suitability is normally based on interview, or by alternative arrangement. Applicants are welcomed from a variety of academic disciplines, as well as those in work and seeking continuing professional development. Admission is normally open to those with a good undergraduate Honours degree (or equivalent) or other professional qualification relevant to one of the key areas of study, or an appropriate linguistic background. Applications will also be considered from those who seek to formalise their prior experiential learning or qualifications and who have appropriate language competence. Applications should be received no later than 1 August, though it is advisable to apply much earlier than this, in particular if you are intending to apply for a scholarship award, or are an international student.
Compulsory Modules: Intercultural Communication, Principles of International Business, EU Institutions and Policies, International Management, The Content of Business Research, Work placement and business research project, dissertation.
Each module is assessed separately, generally on the quality of a combination of written or oral presentation work. Assessment methods may include essays, seminar papers, formal written examinations, case study reports, and individual or group presentations.
