Course summary

If you aspire to a career in the fast-moving, innovative world of marketing or advertising, this is the course for you.

Designed in consultation with leading industry experts, it merges cutting edge theory with practical experience.

You'll boost your employability and build your personal brand through business experience. You can gain hands-on marketing expertise through a work placement, or develop your skills as a consultant by working in a team on a live project. Another option is to venture into entrepreneurship and develop your own business, with support from the University.

This degree comes 'with business experience', which includes the following:

  • The Business Readiness Programme develops your business skills and qualities so that you hit the ground running on the first day of your work internship or graduate job.
  • Business Practice gives you the opportunity to gain valuable, real-life and hands-on experience. In the second year, from May, you will gain a minimum of three months hands-on experience from a choice of:
    • A work internship where you will work within a business in a role linked to your degree or area of interest. This work experience is invaluable on your CV in helping to secure a job after you graduate.
    • A university-based module, which brings a 'real-life' project into the classroom. Through a 'consultancy in practice' or 'entrepreneurship' module you will work alongside your peers, with the support of your lecturers, to develop your own business or find solutions for a 'live' business project.

This course, 'with business experience', aims to increase your employability and future career success. You'll graduate from this degree with both the knowledge from a three year degree as well as three months direct business or research experience; helping you to stand out from the crowd in the future. Kingston Business School holds the prestigious international accreditation by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) in recognition of the excellence of its business education.
