About the course

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing


This course bridges the gap between the two disciplines of management and marketing. You’ll get a good grounding in each subject and, most importantly, you’ll learn about how they interact. On graduation, you become an Affiliate Post-Graduate Member of the CIM (ACIM).

You can apply to do a project-based dissertation, working with an external organisation. You could also spend the summer at another leading university overseas. Recent dissertation projects include a feasibility study and business plan for a Sheffield-based product management organisation and a marketing project for a company in the care sector.

Your career

Our graduates work for companies such as Adidas, ASDA, Boots, ExxonMobil, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Pepsico International, Sainsbury’s and Vodafone. Their job titles include Head of Business Enhancement, Management Consultant, Product Marketing Manager, Web Marketing Consultant and Campaign Manager.

An MBA can help you change direction or progress faster within your organisation. A specialist MSc can take you into a particular field of management such as human resources, finance or marketing. You might be inspired to set up a company of your own.

How we teach


We teach management from a truly global perspective, and our courses are based on pioneering research into the challenges faced by businesses everywhere.

We’ll teach you how to identify opportunities, solve problems and inspire others. Many of our teaching staff are world-class researchers working in policy-relevant areas. Our courses are based on their research.

We bring in guest speakers from business, local government and industry. You can apply to carry out a project with an external organisation as part of your course. We also offer you the chance to spend the summer at another university overseas.
