About Management with Marketing, BA - at University of Leeds

This course offers you the opportunity to combine a comprehensive understanding of the functions and processes involved in managing organisations, with a specialisation in marketing.

You'll cover the core concepts, practices and techniques of management and marketing such as decision-making, marketing strategy, consumer behaviour, marketing research and advertising, and gain an understanding of the wider economic context of business. You'll gain a foundation in key aspects of business such as accounting practices and supply chain management.

Diverse optional modules will also allow you to tailor your course to suit your own interests and career plans, focusing on topics from human resource management to distribution and logistics or management consulting. Throughout the course you'll develop the analytical, quantitative, computing, presentation and other transferable skills required by the business world.

The course is approved by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), giving you entry to the CIM Certificate in Professional Marketing.

  • Course content

    Our degrees have a modular structure. This means that compulsory modules provide you with the core knowledge and skills that you need, while optional and discovery modules allow you to shape your course to suit your personal interests and career aspirations.

    Compulsory modules in your first year will give you a broad foundation in both subjects. You'll gain an understanding of basic accounting practices and economic principles, as well as organisational behaviour and the theory and practice of setting up a business of your own. You'll also be introduced to the basic concepts and techniques used in marketing.

    You'll build on this in Year 2, where you'll examine how theories of organisational behaviour relate to real-world situations. At the same time, you'll look at how information is used to support management and organisational decisions and explore key business functions like marketing, corporate social responsibility and operations. On the marketing side, you'll gain an in-depth understanding of consumer behaviour, how this is measured and the techniques used in marketing research. Optional modules will allow you to focus on topics like business history or managing international business.

    There are fewer compulsory modules in your final year. You'll develop your management skills by studying strategic management, and gain a thorough knowledge of marketing strategy, promotional management and the challenges and opportunities in international marketing.

    Through your choice of optional modules, you could explore topics such as gender and equality at work or logistics - and if you choose the Contemporary Management Consulting module, you'll have the chance to register with the Chartered Management Institute. If you successfully complete the module after this, you'll gain the CMI Level 5 Certificate in Professional Consulting.

    The course culminates with your dissertation, an independently researched project that you submit in your final year, allowing you to apply your research and analysis skills to a management topic of your choice.
