The course aims to extend the understanding and competence gained via professional qualifications, and to enhance the ability of students to think strategically about marketing in the contemporary environment. A number of study routes are offered including both full time and part time learning. Delivery will be on campus during the daytime.

Full-Time route (12 months)

All UK/EU students can choose to complete the course in full-time or part-time mode. International students will need to study full time and complete the whole course in two semesters (due to visa requirements).
