EMBA: Executive Mastery of Business Administration on

International Business & Management (EMBA)

An international Graduate-level Programme designed to develop advanced business management and administration skills, knowledge and understanding with specialisation in international business, cross-cultural management and global marketing.

This is a flexible, expertly produced and designed programme, with study materials and content written, prepared and produced by world-leading experts and publishers.

The professional syllabus, based on expertly designed and produced study materials and content, is also externally validated and endorsed by ILM City & Guilds.  CIC is approved to deliver the Programme in Britain and internationally, and holds international accreditation.
