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.

I was attracted by the small class sizes and combination of the interactive teaching programme and research project within an organisation to provide real-world work experience.

About the course

Course description 2017

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing

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. On graduation, you become an Affiliate Post-Graduate 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.
