Course summary

From clothes and technology, to food and entertainment, the products and services we buy help define our lives. And as a marketing professional, you’ll help to shape the decisions behind those all-important purchases – backed by the specialist knowledge gained from our BA (Hons) Marketing degree. Your studies will comprise two-thirds specialist studies in marketing and one-third broad-based business modules, spanning key topics including marketing planning and research, buyer behaviour, integrated marketing communications and data-driven marketing. You’ll also be in full control of your learning journey, with opportunities in your second and final year to select from a range of optional modules such as digital marketing, business-to-business marketing and retail marketing, as well sport, fashion or music marketing. This allows you to hone your skills and knowledge in a specific area within the wider world of marketing, giving you a further edge when pursuing graduate roles. You will be encouraged to undertake a work placement, study abroad or combine both. In your final year, you’ll have the option to carry out a management enquiry project or a dissertation depending on whether you completed a placement. The management enquiry project will allow for working individually to investigate a real business issue, and gaining critical practical experience. The course content has been developed in partnership with industry bodies the Data and Marketing Association (DMA) and the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), providing professional-level knowledge that gives you exemptions from taking some of their official qualifications. You can also enhance your industry knowledge further by gaining additional CIM and DMA qualifications alongside your studies. Our BA (Hons) Marketing degree is also covered by the prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation for Newcastle Business School. Beyond this recognition, our students’ experience speaks for itself – in the National Student Survey 2020, 95% of students on the course said that they thought staff taught the course in an easy to understand way, while 93% said they’d had the right opportunities to work with other students as part of the course. The University are actively seeking Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB) accreditations from the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and the Institute of Data and Marketing (IDM) for this programme, however these are subject to approval by the relevant accrediting body.
