Course content

The MSc Marketing Management course is aimed at graduates and practitioners who desire to enhance their knowledge and understanding of a range of current marketing thinking and techniques, to support and enhance careers within the profession. In the context of a highly dynamic environment where a complexity of factors, particularly technology and innovation, creates significant impact on marketing strategies, management, systems and functions, the programme seeks to develop key marketing skills which will support both entrepreneurial self-development and employment, and also meet the requirements of managers operating at a senior level. In order to provide students with maximum opportunity, where appropriate live case studies will form part or all of the assessment process, involving interaction with local business.

By the end of the programme students will have acquired high-level knowledge and understanding of marketing concepts and principles, theoretical and business tools and frameworks and applied analysis. The MSc Marketing Management syllabus covers both strategic and operational perspectives and places emphasis upon the practical use of the knowledge gained via the employment of both live and simulated case material.

Students will develop enhanced key skills in the identification and anticipation of current and future marketing needs in given contexts, formulating and managing research, in presentation skills, problem-solving and organising, managing group-based projects, information gathering and exchange, team working and leadership.

For graduates who are already in employment, the programme will enhance their academic and professional skills and understanding, thus enabling them to accelerate their careers within the organisation or, alternatively, seek employment in another organisation at a higher level.

If you undertake the full time MSc Marketing Management you are entitled to become affiliate members of the CIM during your time at the University of Wolverhampton and by doing so will attract a number of additional benefits.

At, or towards the end of the programme, you may wish to fully enrol with the Chartered Institute of Marketing and add a Professional qualification to your Masters award by taking and passing the remaining examinations for the Diploma in Professional Marketing. This would incur extra charges payable to the CIM.

Career path

There are a range of opportunities for you to engage in whilst studying your postgraduate course which are designed to enhance your employability. These include guest lectures, live case studies and a range of placement opportunities. The University of Wolverhampton Business School is a major contributor to the local provision and management of the Government-sponsored Business Support schemes, some of which place graduates, selected via a formal interview process, to assist SMEs on supervised projects. The Department of Marketing and Enterprise is a major participant in this scheme and MSc Marketing graduates who have demonstrated a high standard of educational achievement upon graduation are encouraged to apply for such opportunities. Additionally, the University facilitates a range of employment opportunities via its Careers and Employment Services.

Who accredits this course?

The content of certain modules are aligned to the syllabus of the Professional Body, The Chartered Institute of Marketing, and successful candidates who pass the MSc Marketing Management, gain exemption from one of the three CIM Diploma in Professional Marketing modules. The course is designed so that successful MSc Marketing Management students can register as Associate Students of the Professional Body and for a separate fee (payable directly) have the option of sitting the remaining Chartered Institute of Marketing Diploma examinations based upon the knowledge gained from the course plus appropriate extra study. It is recommended that students who wish to avail themselves of this option should first discuss this with the Course Leader.
