Course summary

Course Overview

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Where the Foundation Year is taught at our Aylesbury Campus all subsequent years will be taught at our High Wycombe Campus.

In a rapidly changing world, driven by the evolving power of technology and shifts in consumer habits and business practices, marketing is critical to the success of all types of organisation, in both the private and public sectors, at both a local and global level. Using the teaching team’s extensive industry and professional connections, this course reflects this new and dynamic marketing landscape, covering everything from understanding the consumer to the latest developments in the role of digital technology in modern marketing.

Become business-ready

Our BA (Hons) in Marketing will help give you a comprehensive understanding of the role of marketing in this changing landscape, aligned with a portfolio of practical skills about how to develop and deploy marketing as an effective business tool.

This will be underpinned by developing higher level skills in problem solving, creative thinking and collaborative working, in a manner that will encourage students to acquire a desire for life-long learning as they develop their careers.

Career-focused

On this programme, you will be exposed to, and more informed of, the different types of roles, jobs and career pathways to be found in marketing, such as brand and marketing managers, consultants, researchers and emerging areas, such as e-commerce and data analysts.

Regular contact with the academic teaching team, across the course will help support you in defining which career pathway you may choose as you progress through the programme.

Staff will use experiential teaching, blended with an understanding of both established and emerging practices and theoretical thinking to enhance your understanding and skills, as well as your ability to think critically and apply justified solutions in real world situations.

What are my career prospects

Nationally, 82.5% of marketing graduates are employed after completion of their degree, according to statistics from Graduate Prospects published in November 2017.

Marketing is a core element of all organisations and so opportunities exist across all industry sectors - private, public and voluntary. These can range from the financial, consumer, automotive and information technology industries to not-for-profit organisations, such as charities, local government and higher education institutions.

Specialist marketing, advertising and PR agencies also offer potential employment opportunities for marketing graduates.

Previous students have gone on to work for a range of companies such as Amazon, Johnson and Johnson, Adidas, Ernest & Young, and McLaren Automotive, as well going on to set up and run their own successful businesses and marketing agencies.
