You will study a mix of English and Maths skills modules, whilst covering an introduction to business.

In Year 1, you will build a further understanding on the broader business subject area, before starting to specialise in the field of marketing.

In Year 2, you will have the chance to explore marketing in more depth. You will study marketing-specific modules such as Digital Marketing and Consumer Behaviour as well as more generalist business modules. These modules will allow you to develop your understanding of how marketing fits within businesses and developing key transferable skills that are valuable for any successful manager.

In your final year, you will further develop your marketing knowledge and explore the role of marketing within a global context and key marketing principles and strategies. You will also produce your dissertation in a marketing topic.
