Marketing is both a philosophy and a critical element of business strategy, and aspects of marketing are often responsible for the success or failure of an organisation, product or service. Organisations that focus on the needs of their customers and employees are much more profitable.
The first year introduces the basic principles of business, management, finance and marketing. In conjunction with your other subject the second and third years allows you to choose from a range of modules.
This course has close links with industry with several of the modules incorporating projects that involve working with live clients, agencies and industry bodies.
We have one of the largest marketing departments in the UK. Our staff include professors of international renown. They contribute to quality teaching, research and consultancy projects. We enjoy excellent relationships with professional bodies. The depth and breadth of staff expertise allows us to offer a wide range of specialist marketing subjects.
