Intercultural Business Communication
Students explore theories of communication, culture, language and society and their applications in business interactions. The distinctiveness of the programme lies in the focus of the course�s 3 principal components: emphasis on intercultural and communication theories applied to work-related contexts in international business; multi-disciplinary pathways with specialist modules; and research training alongside project management. Employability is a major focus on this course; the work placement module gives students the opportunity to work as an intern as part of the programme. Input is given on employability skills including personal branding and using social media, helping them to go on a placement in the country of their choice.
A minimum of a lower 2nd Class Honours degree (or equivalent) in arts, social science, or business related disciplines. Students whose 1st language is not English are required to pass either the TOEFL (minimum 600-pbt or 250 cbt); or IELTS (minimum 6.5).
Modules include: Theory and practice in intercultural business communication; multicultural marketing; organisational communication; dissertation or work placement project (based on a work placement of at least 4 weeks); plus 2 optional modules from any of the following pathways: public relations; business; interpreting and translation; tourism; language and communication.
We use a variety of assessment procedures including essays, portfolios, presentations, projects and examinations.
