The MSc in Marketing is designed for students with some academic background in Marketing and Management Studies who want to enrich and extend their existing knowledge.

It is one of only a few marketing courses in the UK that is accredited by The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), one of the world's largest organisations for professional marketers, while the international group of students we attract allows you to learn about international marketing issues.

This course offers you an opportunity for direct entry onto the CIM's Professional Diploma in Marketing, an enhanced qualification that employers value. An academic as well as a professional qualification on your CV will give you a huge differentiating factor, increasing your employment opportunities.

The course allows you to acquire a level of marketing knowledge that can either lead to a career in marketing or equip you for further academic study (i.e. for a PhD). The School's Marketing Division has a well-established reputation for international research excellence and quality teaching, and hosts a large and diverse faculty of thought leaders in several areas of marketing. Our teaching and research expertise includes consumption and consumer behaviour, services marketing, international marketing, not for profit marketing, relationship marketing, business-to-business marketing, and marketing strategy, among others.

The course aims at depth over breadth and includes significant small group teaching and tutorial work. The modules in the first semester provide the foundation for critical in-depth examination of marketing principles and research methods; in the second semester, the emphasis is on practice. After this, you will undertake a dissertation.

To bring marketing alive as a vibrant and important area of business expertise in modern organisations we include a variety of learning opportunities for our students such as guest speakers, industry placements, consultancy projects, and field trips.
