Course content

Increase your understanding of the practice of marketing, respond to commercial design briefs and engage with businesses of all sizes. The vocational focus of this course means it is suitable for graduates wishing to move into marketing and those seeking to build upon existing marketing expertise.

Our staff all have practical marketing expertise and with their knowledge, you’ll advance your critical understanding of marketing, its application and relationship with other key business operations and consumers. Understanding customers, marketing communication, marketing research, international strategic marketing, digital-marketing and brand management are all integral to this degree.

Assessments involve you in developing academic arguments as well as marketing writing, advertising design and marketing campaign development skills.

The course culminates in a dissertation or a marketing case project, enabling you to specialise in an area of marketing that you find particularly fascinating, and which you may wish to pursue in your marketing career.
