In Semester 1, you will study all the fundamental business modules such as Management, Marketing, Finance and Marketing Communications. Such accelerated learning is designed to give you the conceptual tools needed to analyse business situations and to undertake business planning. In all areas, we take a hands-on approach so that individual and group coursework accounts for 50% of the assessment for each module.
In semester 2, you will engage more closely with specialist marketing modules such as Marketing Metrics, Strategic Management and Online marketing. These will require you to exercise your analytic and decision-making skills by means of case-study based learning.
In addition, you will make an in-depth study of two areas of marketing; these are selected from the current set of options:
- Business-to-business Marketing
- Management of Sales
- International Marketing
- Services Marketing
- Communications and Society
