Course leaders and tutors
Pallavi Singh is a Senior Lecturer in Marketing at Sheffield Business School, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK.
An exciting new development and improvement to the course is that you can now choose a work experience route (you source your own placement). This will run parallel to the more traditional, full time non-work experience route. By successfully completing either route, you would achieve an MSc International Marketing.
Part of your learning experience will require you to undertake a marketing consultancy project with a real world business, in which you will apply your learning to a live marketing case.
The opportunity to visit and communicate regularly with a company will be particularly beneficial to you from the point of view of business engagement and real-life practical experience.
This course prepares you for a career as
- an international marketing manager
- business development manager
- shipping executive in countries such as China, India, Greece, Netherlands and UK
Some of our graduates return home to manage family businesses.
Previous graduates of this course have gone on to work for

• an IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) for the full-time route.
• an IELTS score 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in all skills for the work experience route.
If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English level.
