Course content

Got a passion for marketing? Southampton Solent University’s MA Marketing Management programme can help you to develop an advanced understanding of key marketing concepts, looking at industry practices from a strategic, international and ethical perspective.

Core units look at the significance of communication; the development of existing and emerging marketing strategies; new marketing technologies; globalisation; and relationship marketing. Students also learn how best to apply academic theory to real-life marketing scenarios, eventually researching and writing their own 12,000 word dissertation. This is an ideal opportunity to explore an area of marketing that is related to their own unique career ambitions.

Professional qualifications are offered alongside the core postgraduate curriculum. These include Chartered Institute of Marketing, CAM Foundation, PRINCE2 and Google Analytics awards. Professional qualifications of this kind are valued by many employers, giving students an advantage when it comes time to look for work.
