Studying Marketing at Lancaster helps to develop an understanding of many current and critical questions. Why do people buy a product or service? How are YouTube, vlogging and Instagram influencers changing the marketing landscape? What are the ethics behind collecting consumer data?
From sales to branding, consumer behaviour to distribution, marketing is crucial to a company’s success. Skilled professionals are required to develop, design and implement marketing programmes, processes and activities.
This degree provides an all-round understanding of marketing and includes a study of key areas including Consumer Behaviour, Marketing Communications and Global Markets. You will also study all aspects of Market Research, and gain a practical understanding of how marketing and advertising work in an organisational context.
During the three years of this degree, you will experience a broad range of learning opportunities, with a strong emphasis on collaborative working, that support your personal development as well as your academic skills.
You will also carry out a market research project with a real client which may include an international branded organisation, agency, charity or local company.
