Course content

The MSc in Marketing will develop your understanding of the theory of marketing as well as providing the necessary skills needed to be an effective and successful leader in a complex and dynamic global marketplace.

We recognise that businesses today face unprecedented change. Increased complexity and competition in both domestic and global markets, together with higher expectations and tougher demands from customers and consumers, require the adoption of more sophisticated marketing. This degree will provide you with the knowledge and practical understanding to deal effectively with this dynamic and demanding environment.

You will consider marketing across a range of business contexts including consumer, industrial, financial, service, profit and not-for-profit sectors and study consumers, supply chains, branding and loyalty in local and global contexts. The course will provide a stimulating and intellectually demanding environment, in which you are encouraged to engage critically with the academic literature, case studies and business projects, and your peers, whilst reflecting on marketing issues within an international context.
