Equip yourself for the marketing challenges of the future. You’ll study a combination of marketing and management theory and practice. This helps prepare you for anything – from launching your own company to innovating at the heart of a global organisation. 

You critically evaluate organisational and consumer behaviour, while learning the importance of marketing strategy, brand development and new product management. In the first year, you also develop a valuable understanding of economics, accounting and business law. In the subsequent years, your studies will include digital marketing, consumer behaviour, international marketing and marketing analytics and metrics.

This course prepares you for the workplace while offering the flexibility to tailor your degree to your career path. You’ll engage with dedicated professionals, and be challenged with new perspectives, ideas and approaches. You also benefit from having an Academic Success Adviser who can help you with academic study skills including critical thinking, presenting, academic writing and note-making. You can also spend time enriching your experience by exploring different disciplines from across the University, or by applying for a placement or to study abroad.

We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.

We’ll do our best to provide as much optional choice as we can, but timetabling constraints mean it may not be possible to take some module combinations. The structure of a small number of courses means that the order of modules or the streams you choose may determine whether modules are core or optional. This means that your core modules or options may differ from what’s shown below.

We’ll display the modules running in the academic year 2023/24 as soon as possible.

        We regularly review our modules to incorporate student feedback, staff expertise, as well as the latest research and teaching methodology. We’re planning to run these modules in the academic year 2022/23. However, there may be changes to these modules in response to COVID-19, staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.

        We’ll do our best to provide as much optional choice as we can, but timetabling constraints mean it may not be possible to take some module combinations. The structure of a small number of courses means that the order of modules or the streams you choose may determine whether modules are core or optional. This means that your core modules or options may differ from what’s shown below.

        We’ll display the modules running in the academic year 2023/24 as soon as possible.

        Core modules

        Core modules are taken by all students on the course. They give you a solid grounding in your chosen subject and prepare you to explore the topics that interest you most.

          Options

          Alongside your core modules, you can choose options to broaden your horizons and tailor your course to your interests. This list gives you a flavour of our options, which are kept under review and may change, for example in response to student feedback or the latest research.

          While it’s our aim for students to take their preferred combinations of options, this can’t be guaranteed and will be subject to timetabling. Options may be grouped and if so, students will be able to choose a set number of options from the selection available in any particular group.
