How does marketing impact business and society? What challenges do marketing managers face when deciding how to promote products and services?

Contemporary marketing encompasses activities as diverse as market research, product design and development, strategy and customer relations. It combines advertising glamour with research-oriented analytical skills and strategic decision making.

This course is designed for students who do not have a first degree in marketing or relevant work experience. You learn how marketing drives organisational growth and gain insight into managing marketing projects and teams. You explore the main functions and principles of marketing and management, examining how they impact both business and society.

You study a broad range of marketing disciplines and some of the key challenges facing marketers today. Instead of a dissertation, your research portfolio gives you the opportunity to investigate an organisation of your choice, giving you the chance to apply theory to a live business case study.

Topics may include:
-Key marketing principles
-Strategic brand communication
-Consumer behaviour
-Digital marketing
