Designed around the needs of employers, best practice and current trends, Marketing at Salford Business School provides you with a strong business education in preparation for an exciting career in a fast-paced environment.
Industry relevance is central to all of the programmes offered at Salford Business School. As a Marketing student, you’ll benefit from our industry links through the inclusion of guest speakers from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, providing you with an insight into how different organisations market themselves in different environments.
With the opportunity to take part in a work placement following your second year, you’ll have chance to take what you’ve learned through your studies, and put it into practice in a real business situation. If you choose to undertake a professional experience year, not only will your career prospects benefit, but you will not pay tuition fees for that year and will earn a wage for the work you do.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/business-foundation-year for details.
It’s a really exciting environment. The staff are really friendly, helpful, they can’t do enough for you. It feels like a lot of the staff have come from a background in industry rather than being institutionalised in academia for years.Lee Clatworthy, BSc (Hons) Marketing, 2017
Marketing, whilst industry-relevant and career-focused remains academically challenging. In your first year of study, you’ll develop your knowledge of key business concepts through a number of core modules.
As the course progresses, you have the opportunity to specialise by choosing modules that meet your interests or are more relevant to the direction in which you’d like to steer your career. The modules are designed to instil you with a range of skills and build your understanding in a variety of areas.
This innovative module has been nominated for the Course and Curriculum Design award in the 2018 Guardian University Awards. One participant commented “It was thanks to this module that I gained a much better understanding of what employers are looking for and where I stand in comparison to that from the marks and feedback received… This proves to me I do have the experience and competencies sought after by employers. Realising this has really boosted my confidence.”
All of our BSc students can apply for a one year professional placement, which takes place between your second and last years of study.
This is an excellent opportunity to take advantage of and over the last five years, 90% of Salford Business School undergraduates taking a one year placement secured a 2:1 or 1st class Honours degree.
We will help you find out about vacancies and make the right connections with high profile employers through regular events and presentations.
Here is just a small selection of the companies our students have enjoyed placements with so far: NatWest, Barclays and the Cooperative Bank; BP, Esso and Shell; IBM, Hewlett Packard and Compaq; Ford, Vauxhall, Jaguar and Nissan; Marks & Spencer, Selfridges and Sainsbury’s; Eli Lilly, Glaxo and ICI; Fujitsu, Marriott and Virgin.

Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
