What Will You Study

On this degree you will receive an excellent grounding in Marketing, including the role and importance of market research and analysis as well as understanding consumer behaviour. You will learn about Marketing as a management function and socio-cultural phenomenon and develop your knowledge of marketing strategy and industrial marketing. You will also select from a wide variety of optional modules.

We make sure all students have opportunities to gain real world experience. On this three-year Marketing course you will carry out market research projects with ‘live’ clients – including international brands, agencies, charities and local industries – to develop your professional consulting abilities.

Students on our four-year Marketing Management degree undertake an industrial placement – often with multinational companies – and use that experience, combined with academic ideas, to improve their understanding of management in practice.

You’ll begin your degree with a core first-year module, which provides a rigorous introduction to key concepts and techniques in marketing, including marketing research and the analysis of marketing problems. You also choose two minor subjects, taught by other departments around the University to broaden your academic horizons in your first year.

You will spend the second year of your degree at a partner university in North America or Australasia where your core subjects include Marketing Research; Marketing Simulation; Consumer Behaviour and Routes to Market.

You’ll complete your degree with final-year modules such as Strategic Marketing; Marketing Research and Consultancy Project; Brand Strategy; Topics in Consumer Behaviour and Organisational Marketing.
