Our communication programmes were among the first in the UK and combine the research and teaching strengths in the School of English and Languages with the expertise of Surrey Business School.
We’ve successfully trained over 300 graduates who have left equipped for a range of careers in communication and intercultural consultancy, many within government overseas agencies, international diplomatic organisations and business consultancies.
The Masters in Intercultural Communication with International Business combines linguistic studies, cultural studies, international business components and training in research methods.
You will take six compulsory modules, two optional modules and write a dissertation where you have the opportunity to specialise according to your personal interests. The programme includes numerous opportunities to apply and develop your skills through practical tasks.
The programme is ideal for business professionals who wish to enhance their profile with a postgraduate qualification; and for graduates of humanities, English language or business disciplines who would like to deepen their insight into business across linguistic and cultural boundaries.
This degree will prepare you for a career in the areas of communication and intercultural consultancy, particularly, though not exclusively, where the use of English is required.
More specifically, the programme will appeal if you are seeking to work in multinational and international business, in particular in the fields of intercultural training, human resource management, and communication and marketing.
It will provide valuable preparation for careers in government overseas agencies and international diplomatic organisations, the voluntary sector, local government community initiatives and business consultancies, as well as in the communication industries.
Many of our graduates go on to find employment in a wide range of international organisations and businesses; others choose to take research degrees in their subject.
