MA Marketing draws on the latest marketing research to provide you with a highly practical postgraduate degree. You'll study the latest thinking in strategic marketing management, and also have the option to study topics such as e-marketing, consumer research, and international marketing.

This degree is ideal for marketers who are ready to take the next step in their careers, or professionals in other fields who want to move into marketing.

Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, class discussions and case study exercises. You will have a Peer Learning Support Group (PLSG) where you will be able to work with other students, and support each other.

Your progress will be assessed with written assignments, presentations, portfolios of evidence and time-constrained assignments.

Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters course requires a higher level of independent reading and research.
