Course Summary

Overview

This programme is open to graduates from any discipline. Work experience is welcome but not necessary. This programme not just emphasises the development of a comprehensive knowledge set of key areas in international business, but also their applications. Through interactive teaching and learning students are expected to develop their critical perspectives on the changing dynamics of multinational firms and small businesses and their relationships with the external environment. From the debate in grand challenges of international business to the formulation of global corporate strategy to attain the Sustainable Development Goals, students will learn and analyse how firms need to address the most prominent challenges that global businesses face and take actions. This programme also aims to help students understand the importance of cultural intelligence in delivering effective communications, negotiations and work in the global business environment.

Graduates from this programme are expected to start their careers in global firms with a wide range of function roles, or even start up their own businesses, work for policy makers in international trade and investment.

Teaching & Learning

Masters programmes (with the exception of two-year full-time MAs) consist of 180 credits, made up of taught modules of 30 or 15 credits, taught over 10 or 20 weeks, and a dissertation of 60 credits. The programme structure shows which modules are compulsory and which optional.

As a rough guide, 1 credit equals approximately 10 hours of work. Most of this will be independent study such as reading and research, preparing coursework, revising for examinations and so on. Also included is class time, for example lectures, seminars and other classes.

At SOAS, most postgraduate modules have a one-hour lecture and a one-hour seminar every week, but this does vary. More information can be found on individual module pages.

Modules

The overall objective of this module is to provide an informed appreciation of international marketing as an academic subject and management practice. This module focuses on the central strategic issue in international marketing - standardisation versus adaptation and examines the topics of marketing competitive advantage in relation to changing consumer behaviour and customer relationships.
