Marketing for the modern world

An MSc for those keen to gain greater understanding of the role marketing can play in the running of successful businesses and organisations.

This intellectually challenging programme will help to create the marketing leaders of tomorrow. It will allow you to solve real problems and make the kind of informed decisions that can transform the marketing of your organisation. This MSc will provide you with an understanding of
the key marketing concepts, tools and techniques enabling you to add real value to your business
and advance your career in the process. The programme appeals to graduates in non-business
subjects who wish to develop a career in marketing and individuals who have business-related work experience and now wish to move into marketing, or upgrade their skills and decision-making capability in the discipline.

You’ll study issues of consumer behaviour, research and communications and the part they play in a coherent marketing programme. The programme will appeal equally to non-business graduates and marketing executives alike.
