Course summary

Continuous changes in global markets and technology mean that marketing managers need the skills to be able to adapt to a marketing landscape that’s in constant flux. Today’s Chief Marketing Officers need to develop not just the short term marketing plans but the longer term future strategies for their organisations.

This four-year degree helps shape and build you as a future marketing leader, with a year in industry and new challenges overseas being central to your learning experience.

This degree provides an all-round understanding of marketing and includes a study of key areas including Consumer Behaviour, Marketing Communications and Global Markets. You will also study all aspects of Market Research, and gain a practical understanding of how marketing and advertising work in an organisational context. In addition to this you will have the option of studying various modules from other departments in the Management School to develop your wider management knowledge and acumen.

During the course of this degree, you will experience a broad range of learning opportunities, with a strong emphasis on collaborative working, that support your personal development as well as your academic skills. In addition to your academic modules, you will also take modules which are specifically designed to help prepare for and later reflect on your year’s placement in industry.

You will spend the second year of your degree at a partner university usually in North America or Australasia. There are many advantages to studying abroad, including personal and educational development, experiencing a new culture, and enhanced employability.

Your industry placement in your third year is designed to improve your understanding of marketing and management in practice. Previous students have spent this year working with multinational companies such as The Walt Disney company, Boots and Nike, whereas others have secured roles with marketing agencies, charities and local organisations.

Lancaster University will make reasonable endeavours to place students at an approved overseas partner university that offers appropriate modules which contribute credit to your Lancaster degree. Occasionally places overseas may not be available for all students who want to study abroad or the place at the partner university may be withdrawn if core modules are unavailable. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster.

Lancaster University cannot accept responsibility for any financial aspects of the year or term abroad.

The University will use all reasonable effort to support you to find a suitable placement for your studies. While a placement role may not be available in a field or organisation that is directly related to your academic studies or career aspirations, all placement roles offer valuable experience of working at a graduate level and gaining a range of professional skills.

If you are unsuccessful in securing a suitable placement for your third year, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent non-placement degree scheme and would continue with your studies at Lancaster, finishing your degree after your third year. The University offers a range of shorter placement and internship opportunities for which you would be welcome to apply.
