Modules

This module will focus on creativity and innovation in marketing and its impact on increasing the competitive edge of organisations (across all sectors). You'll also explore the complexity of the creative process and innovation at the individual, group and organisational levels, as well as assess the competencies of a creative and innovative manager.

The dissertation displays mastery of a complex and specialised area of knowledge and skills, employing advanced knowledge drawn from the taught modules and independent research, in developing your ability to analyse and investigate marketing issues and problems.

Entry Requirements

Applicants to this course should already have achieved the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Postgraduate Professional Diploma.

If English is not your first language, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5, with a minimum score of 6 in each element. The required level at TOEFL is 600 or 250 for the computer-based test or 92 in IBT. In addition, full consideration is given to applications for Accredited Prior Learning (APL). This is particularly relevant for students who have partially completed a relevant Masters programme in another country or may have significant, relevant work experience, but no first degree.

The student's prior learning claim is mapped against the learning outcomes of the course. The decision on a claim rests with the Admissions Tutor or Course Leader, subject to confirmation by the Dean of School, Head of Department, or a nominee and ratification by the APL Board. Students must enrol on the course before a claim for APL can be considered.
