Communication and International Marketing MA

Why choose this course?

Our communication programmes were among the first in the UK, combining the research and teaching strengths in the School of Literature and Languages with the expertise of Surrey Business School.

We’ve successfully trained over 300 graduates who have left to work successfully in a wide variety of multinational and international organisations, particularly in the fields of advertising, international management, media and public relations.

What you will study

The MA Communication and International Marketing programme equips students with a critical understanding of communication in contemporary international marketing contexts, in order to address the market needs of the international business environment.

The programme comprises six compulsory modules and two optional modules covering a wide range of disciplines. These offer numerous opportunities to apply and develop your skills through practical tasks. It is ideal for marketing and communications professionals who wish to enhance their profile with a postgraduate qualification; and for graduates of humanities, languages or business disciplines wanting to deepen their insight into marketing across linguistic and cultural boundaries.
