MSc International Management and Marketing

Sheffield University Management School, Faculty of Social Sciences

Triple Crown accreditation means we meet the high standards of three of the world's most prestigious accreditation bodies: AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. This puts us in the top one per cent of business schools worldwide.

We teach business management from a truly global perspective. Our staff and students come from all over the world. And our courses are based on pioneering research into the challenges faced by businesses everywhere.

About the course

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM)

This course bridges the gap between the two disciplines of management and marketing.

You'll get a good grounding in each subject and, most importantly, you'll learn about how they interact. Case studies and assignments will help to develop your applied marketing skills.

On graduation, you become an Affiliate Postgraduate Member of the CIM (ACIM).

You can apply to do a project-based dissertation, working with an external organisation. You could also spend the summer at another leading university overseas. Recent dissertation projects include a feasibility study and business plan for a Sheffield-based product management organisation and a marketing project for a company in the care sector.
