Profile

The Cross-Cultural Communication and International Management MA provides theoretical, research and practical training in international and intercultural communication and international business management. It celebrates diversity in cultural contexts. It focuses on the skills, competences and knowledge necessary to work in today's global business environment.

The International Management pathway is a specialism on the Cross-Cultural Communication MA. It is designed for students who wish to combine the study of cross-cultural communication with developing their knowledge of international business management.

This specialist pathway is delivered by academic staff in Newcastle University Business School (NUBS). It has been created in response to the growing internationalisation of business and management practice.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • critically evaluate the activities of business, governments and multi-national institutions within the global environment
  • diagnose and analyse issues confronting managers in international businesses
  • conduct a marketing audit procedure, operationalise and evaluate a marketing plan
  • critically analyse approaches to business strategy in an international context
  • advise on HRM policy development and strategy within international corporations
  • prepare, analyse and interpret accounting statements
  • design, structure, organise and carry out an advanced research project

You will benefit from Newcastle University Business School's excellent facilities and partnerships with major corporate and social enterprises and academic institutions.

Delivery

Modules are delivered through a range of means, including:

  • lectures
  • seminars
  • workshops
  • group projects

Each module tends to last one semester. Some optional modules are taught in short, intensive blocks and/or on occasional weekends.

The course consists of three main parts, each comprising 60 credits.

Language and communication

This strand is delivered by academic staff in applied linguistics and communication within the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences. The strand comprises one compulsory module and a number of optional modules available to all cross-cultural communication students.

International management pathway-specific modules

The international management strand of taught modules is delivered by academic staff in Newcastle University Business School (NUBS). You will study with other students of international management.

Research portfolio

The research portfolio is equal to an MA-level dissertation. It involves three separate research files which take place over the course of the academic year:

  • an essay on a theoretical matter in Cross-Cultural Communication, submitted early January
  • a presentation on a methodological approach to research in Cross-Cultural Communication
  • an empirical research project conducted over the summer months, submitted at the end of August

Lectures and seminars provide support for the research portfolio. You will also receive one-to-one supervision from an academic member of staff.
