If you have previously studied business, the MSc International Marketing degrees can help you to develop your career more specifically in that direction. Perhaps you already do a marketing role and are looking to gain a Mater’ qualification. Or it may be an area you’re looking to move into.

If you have never studied business previously, you will be able to use your new-found knowledge to launch a career in business. We have seen many graduates who have continued working in areas related to their undergraduate studies but now have stronger business and management knowledge.

The degree option you choose also helps indicate to employers the area you have the most interest in, whether you are looking to progress in the management of people, business strategy, operations, finance or marketing/enterprise.

Graduates move into all sizes of business and across all sectors. Many graduates have launched their own businesses.
