Course summary

BSc Marketing at Lancaster takes a highly flexible approach to your degree. We don’t want to put you through the ‘Marketing Mill’ and have you come out with just a degree in Marketing, we want you to be differentiated by your studies. As such we offer many pathways through your time at Lancaster, where you are able specialise in luxury marketing, brand management, social media management amongst many others. Studying Marketing at Lancaster helps you develop an understanding of many critical questions: Why do people buy a product or service? How are YouTube, vlogging and Instagram influencers changing the marketing landscape? What are the ethics behind collecting consumer data? From sales to branding to distribution, you focus completely on marketing from the start of your studies, going beyond management aspects and marketing’s crucial role in a company’s success, helping you understand consumers. We help to craft the skilled professionals required to develop, design and implement marketing programmes, processes and activities that contribute positively to the consumer society.

You will be challenged to think mindfully and critically about topics such as supply chains and the treatment of supplier networks, over-consumption, and how to negotiate strategies effectively in turbulent times such as Brexit and Covid-19. We work tirelessly to ensure our students have the disciplinary knowledge to succeed, and throughout your degree, you put your learning into practice. Our consultancy-based courses see you work on a live client project, conducting research and consulting for companies, better preparing you for life as a marketer. Previous projects have been with companies including the MOBO awards, Saatchi and Saatchi, Tesco, Lake District Tourism, as well as numerous SMEs and charities. You are supported throughout by an academic tutor – offering pastoral support on academic work, time management, personal matters and everything in between.

You will also carry out a market research project with a real client which may include an international branded organisation, agency, charity or local company.
