The study of marketing is grounded in understanding customer needs, the environment that a company is operating within, the competitors and their offerings and then developing the most appropriate marketing mix to satisfy customer needs profitably. By integrating the two disciplines of business and marketing, we aim to provide a solid foundation of business knowledge with a clear marketing focus.
There will be opportunities to develop your expertise in key areas that underpin business and marketing, such as consumer behaviour, financial management for business, digital business and responsible business strategy. As the course develops, you will be able to tailor your studies by choosing from the optional modules available which may suit your interests or career aspirations.
One of the major attractions of studying business and marketing is the broad range of practical and transferable skills you can develop – creative, analytical, interpersonal and communications. For example, the ‘Marketing Management’ module will give hands-on experience of developing marketing plans and strategy, whilst the ‘Digital Business’ module focuses on responsible decision making and the range of tools and techniques that are used to support this.
