The aim of the business and marketing programme is to provide students with knowledge and understanding of the key aspects of business and marketing that are appropriate for people working in organisations operating within a complex, digital and dynamic business environment. The marketing part of the programme offers students a thorough grounding in the more specialist concepts and applications of marketing management. Students will be exposed to the relational nature of marketing and build an understanding of the primacy of the customer in the digital world. They will learn how strategic marketing planning and marketing communications, through online and offline media, can aid the success of the organisation in the international context.
The professional orientation of the degree is further assured by its links to Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) qualifications. Upon successful completion of the modules the student will have qualified for the CMI Level 5 Extended Diploma in Management and Leadership in addition to their degree.
