Working with industry

Every year we work closely with companies on real projects that give students exposure to practice and provide a learning environment where you can explore the relationship between theory and practice. All students on the programme have the opportunity to work with major companies. In recent years our students have completed several projects with Microsoft.

The Marketing Department at Lancaster University has a strong working relationship with Saatchi & Saatchi, the Lovemarks Company – one of the world’s leading advertising agencies.

We work with Saatchi & Saatchi at the UK and global levels.

In 2013-14, two groups of final-year Marketing and Advertising undergraduate students worked on advertising research and strategy projects with the Talent and Planning teams at Saatchi and Saatchi UK HQ in Charlotte Street, London.

In these projects, the students act as professional communications consultants, and the two-term research projects culminate in professional pitch presentations to senior Saatchi & Saatchi managers.


The Marketing Department has got some of the best academics in the country and they're giving the students the knowledge they need to work with the most famous advertising agency in the world.
