Our marketing Masters degrees have a strong professional focus and will help you develop the practical skills and knowledge you need to pursue a successful career after graduating.
You'll have the opportunity to complete practical projects, working on live case studies or directly with an organisation to solve a real marketing problem. Throughout the course you’ll also benefit from the support of our dedicated Professional Development Tutor, who will support you to develop the skills employers look for.
- Student view: professional skills
Claudia Fransen, MA Advertising and Marketing:
"I really enjoyed the great amount of practical insights integrated into our timetables: speeches from industry experts and marketing representatives from renowned companies, numerous study projects under work life conditions and the opportunity to take part in a consultancy project for a UK company during summer.
I really enjoyed the professional and friendly atmosphere between students and staff, the course prepared me well for my future career!"
Rory-Stewart Knox, MA Advertising and Marketing:
"Most valuable was the personal help at hand. Facilities were in place to guide students through the entire recruitment process. Lynn was my Professional Development Tutor - she worked tirelessly in showing me the areas in which I should focus my research, grilled me through ‘mock’ interviews and developed my understanding of how to present effectively."
- Case study: Marketing consultancy project with National Grid
Our third semester consultancy projects give students the opportunity to work with a live business situation, make links with industry and gain work experience that can be exceptionally rewarding.
Chelsea Moen graduated in 2013 after completing her summer consultancy project with National Grid in the UK. Her project focused on Best Practice in Managing and Measuring Corporate Reputation.
Chelsea explains, "Working with National Grid was a really enjoyable experience - a wonderful opportunity to gain insight and exposure to the potential careers I’m interested in. And it looks great on my CV.
I’m honoured I was chosen for this project - it was a lot of work, I’ve really enjoyed the process and gained some great real-life experience within a Corporate Affairs environment. I received great exposure too, as I was fortunate enough to interview various senior executives and directors of global companies.
While I did really well and got a distinction, the experience and exposure was far more valuable than any grade I received. The project would not have been nearly as successful without the incredible support I received from National Grid. I truly valued the partnership."
