Description

Our BSc Management and Marketing (including Year Abroad) provides a powerful combination of two disciplines, which are of central importance in contemporary society by combining the topic of managing organisations with a specialisation in marketing. You spend your third year abroad. Your management modules provide you with knowledge of the processes and practices relating to the management and co-ordination of organisations, for example, decision making, strategy formulation, leadership and people management. Your marketing modules not only further your understanding of the role of the marketing function in organisations, but also provide a socio-cultural perspective on markets, customers and consumers in contemporary society including specialised topics such as brand management.

Course Content

The special characteristics of our courses are flexibility and choice. In your first year, you usually take four or five modules that include pre-requisite(s) for your course but, in many cases, mean you can try subjects you have not come across before. If you are taking science and engineering subjects, then these options are slightly restricted because our science modules tend to rely on previous knowledge of the subject.
With a small number of exceptions, if you successfully complete the first year of your BSc, then you are qualified to enter the second year not only of that course but also of a range of other courses: for example, if you are a BSc student who takes economics, politics, philosophy and sociology in your first year, then you have a choice of at least two courses and, in some cases, as many as five. This means you can change your course, providing you have taken the appropriate pre-requisites and places are available.
We offer a range of optional modules in your second- and final-years and most courses allow you to undertake a final-year project, an individual piece of research on a topic that interests you. Some of our science courses offer an optional extra year of an industrial placement.
We operate a credit framework for our awards, which is based on principles widely used across the UK university sector. Each module has a credit rating attached and our standard three-year course consists of 360 credits (120 credits in your first year, and 240 credits across your second and final years).
Please note that module information on our course finder provides a guide to course content and may be subject to review on an annual basis.
