Course summary

This fast-track route to the MA Marketing Management takes advantage of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Postgraduate Professional Diploma qualification (Level 7) you've already achieved, and offers you the opportunity to top up to Master's level in one year of part-time study.

This course will also allow you to improve your career prospects in marketing and general business areas.

You'll need to study the following two additional modules to complete an MA:

Modules

Creativity and innovation are at the core of successful marketing activities and necessary for the competitive edge brands seek. This module focuses on how creativity and innovation enhance marketing practices. Exploring the marketing mix from a creativity and innovation perspective, the module looks at how creative and innovative approaches can be utilised by marketers in value creation, market and data analysis, identifying and tracking customers and decision making.

The dissertation enables students to demonstrate their mastery of a complex and specialised area of knowledge and skill drawn from the other taught modules and their own independent research, further developing their ability in framing and investigating critical inquiries in marketing. Students will self-select a problem-oriented research project that is underpinned by advanced theories and framework. The methodology must be appropriately designed and rigorously implemented. The dissertation demonstrates students’ competency in their area of specialism with the marketing field and the findings reflect the potential impact and managerial implications on marketing practices.

Professional Accreditation

The Marketing Management MA is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) with a Graduate Gateway programme status.
