COURSE OVERVIEW

You will gain an in-depth understanding of current key political, social, cultural, environmental and economic issues that shape the marketing of events across the globe. Through the study of global brand management, you will analyse the identity of brands and their position within an international market. You will look at what experiential marketing means to people and how events can be created to evoke positive emotions.

Studying alongside peers and industry professionals, you will examine consumer behaviour – how consumers behave and why they behave the way they do – and you will develop the tools, techniques and strategies to influence these behaviours to generate and retain loyal target audiences going forwards.

A range of research modules will equip you will the knowledge, skills and tools you will need to evaluate valid and reliable methods for data collection and analysis, and you will learn to critique advances in theories, strategies and methodologies for an extended piece of research.
