Your own expertise in marketing will be developed through modules such as Consumer Behaviour, Market Research and Services and Relationship Marketing.

The Professional Development module in the second year helps you to develop the skills you need – presentation skills, networking, interview techniques etc – to move more easily into successful employment.

Through the Study Abroad programme, you could choose to spend your second year studying on an international exchange with one of our global partner institutions in Europe, the US or the rest of the world.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/business-foundation-year for details.
Marketing is a very broad degree and I have really enjoyed studying this programme at the University of Salford. I really do believe doing this course is a real investment in my future and it has already helped me on multiple projects I have been working on outside of the course itself including working with a charity organisation and dealing with multiple stakeholders. If I were to give one bit of advice to others thinking of studying this course it really would be - go for it!Lee Clatworthy, BSc (Hons) Marketing, 2017
