Course summary

MSc Marketing at the University of Lincoln gives students the opportunity to prepare themselves for a career in marketing by developing their understanding of marketing theory and acquire important skills that are necessary in today's marketing environment, such as team working, written and oral presentations, and analysis of data for strategic thinking.

The programme is taught by a team of experienced academics and practitioners, helping students to acquire and advance the knowledge that will be useful in their academic as well as business careers. The programme is available for either a September or February start.

Students will have the chance to hear from guest speakers working in industry and may work on live projects provided by external businesses. Students can also take part field trips in the UK or abroad.

The course is offered with two separate pathways. Students can either complete one year of study or undertake a two-year course where one year is spent in Professional Practice to gain hands-on experience through a paid placement. Students will be responsible for sourcing their own paid placements but will be supported by dedicated employability specialists. Please note: students need to choose the Professional Practice pathway from the outset when applying for the course, and it is only available for a September start.
