The fundamental aim of marketing is to build and maintain superior customer satisfaction and, thereby, value. To achieve this aim, it is necessary to be able to combine Marketing theory with critical and analytical approaches in order to develop innovative value-adding marketing solutions.
In addition, to achieve this aim in different business contexts and maintain success over a period of time, it is also necessary for the basic principles and practices of marketing to be continually applied, challenged and updated. From this standpoint, the study of Marketing cultivates knowledge of the fundamental marketing theories, competency in the key analytical techniques, the ability to develop innovative solutions and the development of the critical thought processes required to continually challenge existing frameworks and approaches.
We expect participants who successfully complete this course to be well prepared for careers in marketing management and for more specialized marketing roles such as advertising.

Although this course does not currently offer a placement, the applied Consultancy Project provides the opportunity to put into practice the knowledge gained from the previous modules within a real life UK business setting. The Consultancy Project enables you to undertake an assignment to develop your consultancy skills and gain a detailed understanding of the management and operation of a modern business.
The consultancy project
Designed to integrate and operationalise theory, the Consultancy Project provides groups of programme members with the opportunity to put theory into practice in a real life UK business setting. The module aims to develop the capacity to work as part of a management team through active participation in a live consultancy project, and to enhance the ability to communicate clearly; argue rationally; and apply strategic concepts to produce real business solutions - given time constraints and conditions of uncertainty.
All of our courses are vocationally-oriented, providing the skills and experience that are relevant to and valued by employers. The real-world consultancy project, carried out in collaboration with local organisations, continues to be a key factor in the success of our courses and one on which we are keen to build. The new framework, in which the consultancy experience forms the basis of a 40-credit project, has preserved and extended this opportunity to provide you with work-based experience that is of genuine value to your future career.
