Why choose this course?
The MSc Marketing Management course is aimed at graduates and practitioners who desire to enhance their knowledge and understanding of a range of current marketing thinking and techniques, to support and enhance careers within the profession. In the context of a highly dynamic environment where a complexity of factors, particularly technology and innovation, creates significant impact on marketing strategies, management, systems and functions, the programme seeks to develop key marketing skills which will support both entrepreneurial self-development and employment, and also meet the requirements of managers operating at a senior level. In order to provide students with maximum opportunity, where appropriate live case studies will form part or all of the assessment process, involving interaction with local business.
By the end of the programme students will have acquired high-level knowledge and understanding of marketing concepts and principles, theoretical and business tools and frameworks and applied analysis. The MSc Marketing Management syllabus covers both strategic and operational perspectives and places emphasis upon the practical use of the knowledge gained via the employment of both live and simulated case material.
