This marketing masters is designed to help you evolve into a critically informed professional with the key analytic and strategic skills employers need.

During your studies, you will be introduced to ideas that will improve your strategic thinking and your ability to devise creative solutions to marketing problems.

Distinctiveness within the diet of study comes from a focus on the contemporary consumer. Today’s consumer is more marketing savvy, more environmentally aware of the responsibilities associated with the market place, and has greater engagement with technology. Understanding this emergent being is crucial to marketing practitioners in developing innovation within the marketing field. This greater understanding will help marketers to develop more appropriate strategies and communications methods and thus facilitate more effective bi-directional communication which will assist with organisational success, but also with the creation of a more satisfied customer base. The inclusion of modules such as ‘Innovation in Consumerism and Market Research’, ‘Trends in Marketing’ and ‘Social and Sustainability Marketing’ will allow the student to focus in depth on the matters that are crucial in developing organisational success that pays due regard to the customer base.

Course content allows you to focus on how research can inform practice, and strengthen performance in complex modern markets. You will explore why organisations adopt certain marketing strategies and tactics, and how practices are likely to evolve in today’s rapidly changing international business environment.

Your studies will also focus on the increased importance of brand and reputation management, the modern driving force of new media, and the challenge of re-appropriating traditional approaches to communications.

You will challenge the broad-based concepts and philosophies of modern marketing and consider the importance of a customer-centric, service dominant approach to marketing, where the balance of power is shifting from marketer to consumer. You will gain an insight into emerging trends in contemporary marketing practice, underpinned by cutting-edge approaches to managing an organisation’s reputation and its brands. You will also learn how to communicate with the end consumer and other stakeholders through traditional and new media.

Careers

Our students are highly employable:
They develop the expertise that employers want from computing graduates - our Industrial Advisory Board includes experts from a range of industries including Amazon, Scottish Enterprise Tayside, NCR, Chevron and Microsoft
They are prepared for a wide range of good career prospects in computing - the UK faces a massive shortage of graduates qualified to fill the 120,000 new jobs in computing and IT every year

Graduates may also choose to continue to a PhD in the School of Computing or elsewhere.

Computing at the University of Dundee is ranked 21st in the UK according to most recent Times Good University Guide and 12th in the UK according to the Guardian University League Table 2009. The University of Dundee has powered its way to a position as one of Scotland's leading universities with an international reputation for excellence across a range of activities. With over 18,000 students, it is growing fast in both size and reputation. It has performed extremely well in both teaching and research assessment exercises, has spawned a range of spin-out companies to exploit its research and has a model wider-access programme.

Dundee has been described as the largest village in Scotland which gives an indication of how friendly and compact it is. With a population of 150,000 it is not too large but has virtually all the cultural and leisure activities you would expect in a much larger city. It is situated beside a broad estuary of the river Tay, surrounded by hills and farmland, and for lovers of the great outdoors it is hard to imagine another UK location that offers so much all year round on land and water. The University is situated in the centre of Dundee, and everything needed is on the one-stop campus: study facilities, help, advice, leisure activities... yet the attractions of the city centre and the cultural quarter are just a stroll away.
