Course info


Have you ever looked at the latest big brand advertising campaign and thought; I could do better than that? Marketing is central to our everyday lives as organisations compete for attention with TV ads, sporting sponsorships, social media campaigns and more. NCI’s new BA (Honours) in Marketing Practice will allow you to understand these campaigns and the strategies behind them and give you the skills to work in this fast-paced area.

Our honours marketing degree is unique in that you will be offered hands-on experience. You will learn about the latest thinking and techniques, but will also work on real, live industry projects where feasible: planning, implementing and adapting current campaigns under the supervision of expert lecturers and marketing professionals. You will present your ideas to industry personnel from a range of Irish companies and not-for-profit organizations who work with us to make your degree as practical as possible.

  • Understand how modern marketing operates and how the various disciplines of marketing work together in Ireland and internationally.
