Leading employers worldwide increasingly expect their marketing staff – experienced professionals and new recruits alike – to have a specialist degree such as an MSc. Our course is designed to give you a thorough understanding of the core concepts of marketing and to practise these in safe but realistic business and marketing situations. Building on the broad contextual aspects of marketing, you’ll focus on how to create and implement strategic marketing plans and how to manage brands. Our emphasis is on fostering your creativity, helping you to address marketing challenges in new and original ways. Every module has an international dimension to enhance your global perspectives too. We also aim to develop your practical and creative skills beyond the operational and functional so that you gain a more strategic level of understanding.

A widely respected postgraduate qualification, our MSc Marketing Management is a powerful way to set yourself apart in an increasingly competitive job market. You will benefit not only from a broad training in the key marketing concepts but also from our strong focus on marketing management and leadership skills. It means you can differentiate yourself further still from graduates with general marketing degrees. By the time you complete your MSc Marketing Management, you will have experienced many different aspects of marketing and will be ideally placed to start or resume your career in the profession or even to move into broader business and management spheres.
