Course content

The MSc in Marketing is designed for students with little or no previous academic background in marketing who want to pursue a career in marketing. The international background of the students we attract allows you to learn about marketing in an international context first-hand. To bring marketing alive as a vibrant and important area of business expertise in modern organisations we include a variety of learning opportunities for our students such as guest speakers, industry placements, and field trips.

This course is accredited by The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), one of the world’s largest organisations for professional marketers. This allows you direct entry onto the CIM’s Professional Diploma in Marketing. The opportunity to follow up your academic qualification with a professional qualification gives you a combination that employers value and that differentiates you in the employment marketplace.
