Marketing and managing on a global scale – divide your studies between the UK and Hong Kong to gain a critical understanding of successful marketing across international territories.

This 12-month programme, jointly delivered by Sheffield University Management School and Hong Kong Baptist University, is designed for students from any disciplinary background seeking to develop a career in international marketing. It is approved by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).

You will spend the first semester of your studies in Sheffield, the UK and the second in Hong Kong, People’s Republic of China. Non-Hong Kong graduates of the programme can apply to stay and work in Hong Kong for 12 months after graduation. Students registering for this programme will automatically become Affiliate Post-Graduate Members of the CIM.

The Course

Our MSc in Global Marketing Management is taught full-time over two semesters (semester one in Sheffield, semester two in Hong Kong) followed by a project dissertation, through a combination of lectures, seminars, case studies and group work for collaborative learning. A blend of case studies and assignments will help to develop your applied marketing skills. Students are assessed through individual assignments, group projects, examinations and their dissertation.

The CIM accreditation is very beneficial for graduates in this MSc. Students registering on the programme automatically become Affiliate Post-Graduate Members of the CIM. On successful completion, you qualify for associate CIM membership status and if you have three years’ marketing work experience you will qualify for full membership of the Institute. Following further development, graduates from our MSc in Global Marketing Management also qualify for Chartered Marketer status.

The course begins in September and lasts over a full 12 months.
