Overview

Marketing activities should play a central role in delivering value to both customers and shareholders. In this context ‘marketing’ can be seen as being at the interface between the customer and the organisation – it interprets the needs, desires and changing values of customers for the organisation and at the same time presents the organisation’s response in terms of services or products to the customer. Modern marketing requires analytical, numeric and data management skills as well as the creativity traditionally associated with marketing.

The BSc in Marketing will provide you with an up-to-date knowledge of marketing that is grounded in both marketing theory and practice. The focus is on delivering value for both customers and shareholders using technology in both the management of customer experience and in engaging with customers through digital media.

This Marketing degree course is four years in duration and involves an industrial placement year in your third year which is compulsory for all students. You will then return to the University to complete a 4th and final year of study. Thus, the programme will introduce you to exciting new developments in marketing practice and provide you with work-related skills that are in great demand from employers.
