The delivery of the programme is by a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, presentations and case study exercises. In order to develop their marketing management and decision-making skills, students are encouraged to actively participate in class discussions and problem-solving exercises. At an early stage in the programme, students are formed into Peer Learning Support Groups (PLSGs). These cross-cultural groups are designed to encourage additional mutual study support and a further tier of independent working.
Assessment methods vary depending on the subjects being delivered. However, students on the MA Marketing can expect to be assessed by a combination of individual written assignments, presentations, portfolio development and time constrained assignments.
A programme of guest speakers and company visits will enhance your learning experience, as will the diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences of those taking the MA Marketing programme with you.
The Masters in Marketing will prepare students for successful careers as marketing managers in a myriad of manufacturing, service-related or not-for-profit environments around the world.
