Master Language and Intercultural Communication - Máster en Lenguaje y Comunicación Intercultural
MA Intercultural Business Communication will be of interest to those wishing to work in careers related to, or who have already worked in international business and management contexts.

The postgraduate course raises awareness of theories of communication, culture, language and society and their applications in business interactions. The distinctiveness of the programme lies in the focus of the course’s three principal components: emphasis on intercultural and communication theories applied to work-related contexts in International Business; multi-disciplinary pathways; and Research Training.
