Course content

The MSc Strategic Marketing programme has been developed in response to the increasing global focus on marketing as a highly strategic management function.

During the programme you will examine marketing fundamentals, explore a range of topics in advanced marketing and strategy, understand the critical role of technology as a marketing challenge and opportunity, and apply this knowledge in the context of established companies and entrepreneurial ventures. Technology is an integral part of our programme. A range of teaching innovations will enhance your learning and bring digital media, particularly social media, into the classroom.

You will be required to study 13 taught modules. Each module builds on previous experience while introducing new and challenging disciplines. In the autumn and spring term you will study modules designed to equip you with practical tools for the application of marketing strategies in key areas such as pricing and branding.

In the Summer term you will study how to apply leading edge strategies to marketing plan development and implementation. You will take part in an exciting Marketing Consulting Project for a live client organisation, develop a clear multi‑channel marketing plan for the Marketing Plan Competition and write a 5,000 word unsupervised report on a current strategic marketing topic.
