This course provides you with a solid business education and preparation for a wide variety of managerial careers.
Your expertise in marketing will be developed through modules such as Consumer Behaviour, Market Research and Services and Relationship Marketing.
Your professional development prospects will also be strengthened through subjects like HRM, Accounting and Law in a Business Context, as well as specialist options in each year, such as Organisations in a Global Environment and Operations Management.
All subject areas throughout the course are approached with an international perspective and you will have the option of learning an additional language to help you communicate and succeed in today's increasingly global economy.
This course is also available with a Professional Experience Year, giving you the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding you have gained in the first two years of the course. There are different entry requirements and course codes for the Professional Experience Year option.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/business-foundation-year for details.
This course allows you to either specialise or follow an integrated route and the modular design gives you considerable choice.
All marketing students study the same modules in the first year, after which you are given the flexibility to review and change your options depending on which subjects interest you the most. This approach gives you a vital foundation in key business disciplines to support the subjects you go on to study in your second and final years. It also means that all students achieve the same level of marketing knowledge at the end of their first year.
