This programme is designed for recent graduates and practising managers already familiar with basic marketing concepts. It will enable you to develop advanced knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of integrated marketing communications but within a strategic marketing context and managerial framework. This programme is accredited by The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).
The programme will develop your critical awareness of contemporary strategic marketing issues, the role of communications in marketing, and a critical approach to the principles and practice involved in planning, creating, managing and evaluating communication campaigns which incorporate both traditional and new media.
Through working on two major consultancy projects you will develop an understanding of the principles and challenges of consulting in the communications sector and develop skills in facilitation, communication, negotiation, project management, problem-solving, relationship-handling, project leadership and team work. Part of your skills training will take place off campus at the university's Priestley Centre on Lake Coniston in Cumbria.
