Consumers today are offered a huge range of products and services in an increasingly competitive environment. Marketing is the management process that responds to this by identifying, anticipating and satisfying a consumerâ??s needs so that they choose your product or service over that of a competitor. Marketers also plan and develop the communications that are used by a company or individual to reach their target market. The widespread adoption of marketing means there are numerous opportunities to pursue exciting and varied careers in the profession, and our students go on to work for marketing departments and also for independent marketing agencies. As part of your degree you can work towards a Chartered Institute of Marketing qualification that can really make you stand out in the job application process. Our range of contacts in the marketing industries also means that youâ??ll have opportunities to meet and talk with industry professionals, visit real marketing departments, and take advantage of opportunities for internships and placements. You can spend an optional third year of a four year degree in a full-time, paid work placement with an employer, supported by the Universityâ??s Career Development service. If you take this option you will also be entitled to receive tutorial support from an academic member of staff throughout the year.
