With its accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), this MSc is designed to lead graduates into a career in marketing management.

This programme provides you with the knowledge and skills for a career in the marketing discipline and students registering on this programme will automatically become Affiliate Post-Graduate Members of the CIM.

The Course

Taught full-time over two semesters, followed by a dissertation, you learn through a series of lectures, seminars, case studies and group work for collaborative learning. Assessment is through individual assignments, group projects, examinations and a dissertation.

The CIM accreditation is very beneficial for graduates in this MSc. Students registering on the programme automatically become Affiliate Post-Graduate Members of the CIM. On successful completion, you qualify for associate CIM membership status and if you have three years’ marketing work experience you will qualify for full membership of the Institute. Following further development, graduates from our MSc in Marketing Management Practice also qualify for Chartered Marketer status.

You also have the option to undertake an organisational project, giving you real-world work experience within a company.

The course begins in September and lasts over a full 12 months. Students who successfully complete the first semester but do not proceed receive the PG Certificate. Those who pass both semesters’ modules but do not complete the dissertation receive the Diploma.
