Who is it for?

Whether you want to break into marketing, start your own business, take over your family’s company, or just learn more about how to innovate new products and services, and create buzz and excitement around them, this course is right for you.

This course is specifically tailored for students with little or no prior marketing experience and study background. It will qualify you to get your first professional marketing position, even if you have studied fine arts, medicine, business, or physics before. If you are looking for a degree that deepens your advanced marketing knowledge, please take a look at our MBA programmes.


Some people equate marketing with advertising. Not you. You know that marketing is a multi-faceted business process involving creativity and innovation alongside analytical and strategic skills.

The MSc in Marketing Strategy and Innovation course gives you a sound understanding of the principles and state-of-the art practices of marketing. You will acquire the latest knowledge on market research, customer analysis, innovation and design, brand management, advertising, digital and social media marketing, fashion brand management, storytelling, sponsoring, and many other current marketing topics.

Your lecturers bring these topics to life through interactive classes, case discussions, lectures with leading marketers, and hands-on innovation and communication tasks. You will, for example:

  • work with a London start-up company on a marketing plan for the introduction of a new product to the UK market
  • develop your own business idea, business model, and communication strategy and pitch it to a jury of London marketers and investors
  • compete against classmates in a strategy simulation game where you experience how your marketing decisions would play out in the real world
  • personally meet some of London’s finest senior marketers, from companies such as Unilever, Visa, Interbrand, and Unruly.

What will you learn

  • Develop your understanding of up-to-date tools and tricks of leading marketing strategists, as well as of the newest emerging theories and approaches.
  • Directly apply what you have learned in class to real marketing problems. 
  • When you graduate you will be able to contribute right away to marketing practice in leading organisations.
  • You will also have the knowledge and skill to get audiences excited about your own start-up idea.

Integration Weeks

In the first two weeks at Cass, you will meet your new classmates, the marketing faculty, your course officer, and learn about the library, IT, and career services at Cass. You will also get special classes where you test your own personality, learn to collaborate and achieve targets in multi-cultural groups, solve case studies, present convincingly, conduct academic experiments, and use Microsoft Excel.

Students will be assessed through a range of different methods. Most courses have both an exam and a coursework assessment component. Students conduct the course work with study groups. Group members learn from assessing each other through peer assessment, mirroring evaluation mechanisms in organisations.

Gain an advanced understanding of the psychology of consumer behaviour. Explore the psychology of people’s product choice, purchase decisions, and the use of services. Discover strategies of changing and learning from consumer attitudes and behaviours. Analyse advertising effectiveness and persuasion processes.

Developed for both recent graduates of Psychology, Business, Marketing as well as current business development, marketing, advertising or market insight/research professionals, this course covers the workings of the consumer mind in the increasingly saturated and global markets. Specifically you will learn about what captures consumers’ attention, how their perceptions and attitudes may be altered as well as factors that affect the consumer decision-making process.

You will also consider the social-psychological aspects of consumers’ functioning such as social influence tactics used in sales, persuasion and advertising alongside the role of personality and identity in consumer’s functioning. Furthermore, you will learn about the most commonly used statistical techniques as well as the theoretical and practical complexities of conducting psychologically based consumer research.

You will learn and put your research skills into practice throughout your Masters which will culminate in your own piece of independent research. Your project could support the business you currently work within or be based on a sector or company you would like to work for in the future such as the FMCG or advertising sectors.

Upon graduation you'll be well placed to provide businesses, government bodies and charitable institutions with expertise and insights into psychological aspects of marketing, branding, advertising and consumer behaviour.

Our teaching team include Course Leader Dr Cathrine Jansson-Boyd, Dr Magdalena Zawisza, Dr Suzanna Forwood and Dr Richard Piech. All have extensive experience in furthering the understanding of consumer behaviour. In addition, we regularly invite speakers from industry.

Our psychology research has been classified as world-leading and internationally excellent in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) and we continue to work with industry to generate relevant research outcomes that lead to measurable impact. For more information about who we work with please click on the individual links of the course lecturers.


This Masters degree is designed for graduates wishing to start, or further develop, careers in Consumer Psychology. The fact that this course is relevant to many job industries such as marketing, PR, advertising, and consumer research, marketing research and product development and is currently not commonly taught in the UK, will give the students a distinctive edge in a job market that is often competitive.

In order to further provide students with a springboard into the job market we will endeavour to facilitate internship opportunities by encouraging students to engage with the Consumer Research Group based at ARU. The aim of the research group is to bridge the gap between academic research and business application by working closely with locally based businesses. The abilities gained by undertaking the MSc in Consumer Psychology will place students in a strong position for pursuing a professional career in Consumer Psychology or further postgraduate study (e.g., a PhD) and research, or employment in a university.


We use a number of ways for you to demonstrate your learning from the modules, and to ensure you develop the knowledge and skills required to complete the course. These include presentations, exams, essays, reports and projects.
