Course content

Manchester Metropolitan University is currently undertaking a review of long-term academic provision on the Cheshire campus. The review will look at how we might re-focus the types of courses offered at Cheshire in the context of the wider University provision. A range of options is currently being considered.

We can confirm that we are taking and processing applications for full time postgraduate courses and any part time courses of one year duration starting in 2017 on the Cheshire Campus. However, with regard to longer part time postgraduate courses, due to the ongoing review, the University will accept applications for courses delivered at Cheshire but will not process those applications until more is known in respect of the future of the campus.

With an additional focus on deepening your understanding of the core concepts and competencies that underpin this increasingly important business area, this course provides you with an opportunity to combine marketing experiences with theory.
This programme ensures development of both personal and professional skills and knowledge through four core units while your marketing expertise will be developed through three marketing electives and a specialised research project culminating in the production of a dissertation.

You will be assessed continually through a series of case study presentations and written assignments. Your dissertation will usually be based on empirical research.
