Strategic Marketing and Consulting MSc


Course Description

Designed for recent graduates or practising managers who are already familiar with basic marketing concepts, this programme will enable you to develop advanced knowledge and understanding of contemporary and complex strategic challenges facing marketers, and to deepen your insights in the theory and practice of specialist aspects of marketing.

The suite of MSc Marketing programmes have been approved and accredited by The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and is recognised by the ESRC for research training.

The programme will develop your critical thinking, research and communications skills and, uniquely, will feature consultancy projects as a vehicle for learning and as a means of developing further personal skills for later marketing and consulting careers.

Programme content

The programme will focus on developing your knowledge and understanding of marketing through advanced modules on Contemporary Issues in Strategic Marketing, Strategic Management and Marketing Analytics, Problem Solving & Strategic Marketing as Practice. Subsequently you will deepen your understanding by undertaking a live consultancy project alongside a range of specialist elective modules (including Retail Marketing, Strategic Brand Management, Strategic Environmental Sustainability and Marketing Communications). The final component of the programme is an individual consulting project and dissertation, adding a further opportunity to apply theory to practice and a further company experience for your CV.

On this programme our students have undertaken live consultancy projects with a range of top companies – for example, Cadbury, Hobbs, Honeywell, Land Rover/Jaguar, Cogent Elliot, TRW, Helix and Aston Villa Football Club. These consultancy projects will give you valuable experience and substantially enhance your marketing career prospects. Graduates from the programme have moved into a range of marketing and consultancy roles with top UK and international companies.
