Business/Marketing with Overseas Study

This course allows you to combine studies in marketing with that of the wider business environment. Business: No matter where you work, there will be underlying principles of business in operation. A degree in business provides a solid foundation to build your career as a high-earning professional. One of the most popular subjects, studying business at Manchester Met will equip you with the necessary skills to set up your own company, or build a management career in an existing organisation. Business professionals are good at leading teams; have sound commercial awareness; are adept at spotting enterprising opportunities; can manage projects and are excellent problem solvers. There are opportunities to participate in business and enterprise competitions, receive support and advice from mentors from our Innospace graduate incubator and business start-up unit, and to network with successful entrepreneurs and consultants who contribute as guest lecturers and placement employers. Marketing is all about presenting people, products and ideas to different audiences. The results can be spectacular, creating global brands that become household names and sparking new trends that revolutionise what we do and how we do it. Job roles in the sector can be very varied and combine skills in project management, marketing operations and campaign planning with creative skills such as devising memorable advertising slogans and writing effective media. Our Marketing degrees are delivered at our award-winning Business School and have been developed in close co-operation with practitioners from the industry, who are also actively involved as expert guest lecturers, mentors and placement employers. This is a Combined Honours degree programme, providing the flexibility for you to study two subjects at degree level. Your choice of combination can be shaped to suit your interests, strengths and career ambitions. Studying a Combined Honours programme, the combinations you may choose to study will vary each year, so you may wish to study more units of one subject rather than the other. In Year 1 you will study equal amounts of your two subjects. In Year 2 the balance may vary from equal amounts of each subject to a major/minor combination where you focus more on one of your subjects. In Year 3, you may continue to study both subjects on an equal or major/minor basis. Whatever your chosen subject combination, you will be able to demonstrate to future employers your flexibility and breadth of experience and skills. This is a four year degree that includes a year of study abroad, also referred to as ‘Exchange’. You will usually go on an exchange on your third year of study, so you’ll begin planning and applying for your exchange in your first and second year. Study abroad (exchange) opportunities exist throughout Europe, through the Erasmus+ programme. We also offer global exchange opportunities in the USA, Asia and Australasia. We are constantly growing our international exchange partnerships and have long-standing relationships with universities across the world who have welcomed our students as part of our exchange programme.
