Course content

Our MSc Marketing degree will help you become a market-ready professional with a global outlook, equipped for a successful career in marketing, business or management. Created in close consultation with the marketing industry and the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), it develops the strengths, abilities and understanding today's marketing employers are looking for.

You'll explore the fundamental issues and concepts of marketing practice, before learning about consumer buying behaviour and the factors that influence it. You'll also take a holistic view of an organisation and how it attempts to develop marketing strategy in a challenging global environment.

As a student of MSc Marketing, you’ll automatically become a student member of the CIM, allowing you to access their learning resources and events.
