International Management (Marketing)

The Royal Holloway International Management (Marketing) MSc is a rigorous - and rewarding programme aimed at ambitious and self-motivated individuals at the outset of their professional working life who have studied management previously. It is ideal for those who wish to pursue a postgraduate degree in general management (marketing) with an international orientation and will prepare you to enter the globalised world of work on a competitive footing, maximising your potential and widening your choices.

On graduating you will have a comprehensive and integrated knowledge and understanding of organisations, their management and the marketing environment in which they operate. As part of this, you will have examined accounting and finance from a managers point of view and evaluated the impact of internal and external factors on the kinds of human resource strategies drawn up by international organisations. The course will focus on an understanding of how international marketing fits into the organisation and running of a company or multi-company corporation.
