    Marketing (Attracts maximum exemptions from the Diploma of the Chartered Institute of Marketing) (MA)
  • Course description
    The programme comprises a range of taught modules that cover many aspects of the management of marketing in organisations.

    Its central theme is the production of marketing plans in an ever-changing environment. It focuses in particular on marketing communications, marketing research and electronic marketing.

    It is taught in a participative style where students are encouraged to share and reflect on their experiences and the body of marketing theory and knowledge.

    Students are encouraged to apply this theory and knowledge to their own organisations.

    The Masters dissertation element enables the student to explore in-depth an issue of interest to them, and to make a contribution to the growing body of marketing knowledge.

    Due to the wide ranging background of participants, the programme considers many different industries and also incorporates aspects of service marketing. Whilst the programme is not specifically designed for the public sector, several students in the past have been from this area and have found the material to be of great help to them.
