International Marketing MSc/PgDip/PgCert

Few businesses can afford to ignore international markets and competitors. Whether the global economy is flourishing or not, international markets are increasingly part of any marketing strategy.

The MSc International Marketing places particular emphasis on the international dimensions of marketing, both in terms of the need to adapt marketing strategies to international markets and also in terms of the practicalities of operating across different country markets.

Although this course has been primarily designed for students who have already studied marketing or a related subject previously, it is equally applicable for motivated students who wish to develop cutting edge expertise in international marketing.

Whilst theoretically robust with an emphasis on applied critical thinking and analysis, this unique Master's course is grounded in real world issues. Throughout the course, extensive use is made of real world international marketing problems. As such, the focus of this course is the development of the applied international marketing leaders of tomorrow.

As the global economy recovers so the opportunities in international marketing will expand with it.
