BA(Hons) Marketing Communication Management (with Foundation Year) is for self-motivated individuals keen for a career in an agency or in-house communications. It’s ideal if you want a focused, hands-on approach to the creative and strategic aspects of marketing communications. This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM). When you complete this course, you’ll be able to claim exemptions from two of CIM’s professional exams. In your first year, you’ll develop a mini agency with its own brand, digital media presence, print materials and strategy based on what you’ve learned in tutorials. Class-based activities focus on developing your marketing knowledge through real challenges and problem-solving. You prepare for these sessions using videos, case studies, quizzes and research, so your contact time is always interactive and engaging. You’ll address real-world issues from the start, using your new skills to address case studies and support local startups and charities with their marketing challenges. When you graduate you’ll have the skills to go directly into a wide range of careers; 92% of our students report being in work or further study a year after graduating. You might work for a multinational ‘through-the-line’ agency or a small 'hotshop'. You could choose to work in-house or even start your own business.
