Program Description

For those with creative flair, analytical minds and a love of communicating, our Marketing BA (Hons) course could, upon successful completion, lead to a potential future career in this exciting field.

Marketing is a subject that impacts everyone’s lives, now more so than ever as advancements in digital and social media are opening up new and exciting ways to attract and engage customers anytime, anywhere and any place.

This course, which is part of the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s (CIM) Graduate Gateway programme, is aimed at students with an interest in all areas of sales and marketing from the creative to the analytical – whether that is advertising and brands, consumer behaviour and retailing, or new product development and market research. It aims to provide a solid foundation in general business and management knowledge with a specific focus on marketing, both as a business strategy and a function.

Overview

All of our Marketing courses share some common first year modules, designed to develop your understanding of business in general, as well as introductions to marketing specialisms like market research, planning and communications, which provide a solid foundation for your ongoing studies.

In your second year you have the opportunity to develop your expertise in key areas that underpin marketing, such as consumer psychology, consumer behaviour, campaign management and digital marketing. As the course develops, you will also study modules focused on preparing you for your potential future career options.

In your third year you have the option to apply for a placement, or study abroad year, which can be spent overseas (studying with one of our partner universities, or working) or on a placement in the UK.

Coventry Business School’s employability team can provide you with a wide range of support services in order to help you apply for a placement opportunity, including mock interviews and CV writing workshops.

If you wish to undertake the optional study abroad/placement year, you will take either the Placement Year module or the Study Abroad Year module which both typically run for a full academic year between years 2 and 3 of your course. You are able to progress onto the relevant module if you have successfully completed the first two years of the course (i.e. having accumulated 240 credits) and have a confirmed opportunity two weeks prior to the start of the academic year, however we encourage international students to confirm their placements earlier to ensure they are able to meet any applicable visa requirements.

Students opting for either the work placement or study abroad module will be registered on a non-credit bearing module and therefore no additional tuition fees apply. While the modules do not bear credits, they do require completion of a marked assessment reflecting on your placement/study abroad or work placement experience. Following successful completion of this assessment, the module selected will appear on your final academic transcript. Students will thus graduate with 360 credits in total, assuming successful completion of their final year.

Please note that we are unable to guarantee any internships, placement or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, visas and accommodation etc.), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the requirements in this regard, please contact the International Office for further details if you are an EU or International student.

The culmination of your studies will be the completion of an independent research project in a specialist area. You will be supported on a 1:1 basis by an academic supervisor with expertise in your topic area with past topics ranging from digital marketing, advertising and branding research to ethical and cultural issues in marketing, which can include anything from stereotypical to subliminal advertising.
