This course is ideal for those who are interested in how businesses are operated and managed, but who also want to develop their own marketing expertise.
Through workshops, role-plays, problem solving exercises and analysing case studies, you'll learn to communicate your ideas and help to sell your products and services to customers. You’ll also study the key business functions that organisations require for success.
In terms of your career after your graduate, a BA in Business Management with a focus on marketing opens up a broad career path. The skills you'll develop are needed across almost every business and governmental sector, as well as third party organisations.
Developing the essential skills required for business will be at the core of your course. You’ll develop your business acumen so you can deal with any challenge you’ll face in your fast-paced career.
Over the course of this Business Management and Marketing degree you’ll learn by doing – the vast majority of our modules are practical, and you’ll be assessed based on real life case studies and simulations.
During the marketing section, you’ll take on a range of digital marketing courses. You also have the opportunity to work on a marketing consultancy project where an external client will provide a project brief and you’ll work in a team to provide practical, actionable solutions. This gives you the opportunity to put your marketing knowledge into action, and ensures you are able to problem solve and negotiate as part of a team.
The structure of the new programme has moved from being solely based on 30 credit modules to now incorporate a combination of both 15 and 30-credit modules. You will now take a total of eighteen modules over the three years of the programme; this compares with twelve under the previous format. This approach has been designed to provide a broader coverage of the subject and also helps graduates form a clearer idea as to the specific direction you wish to explore on your future career path.
You’ll get the support you need to succeed. From your Personal Tutor to your Graduate Academic Assistant, each one has studied your subject and will provide the support you need based on their first hand experience. If you need a little help with writing, numeracy or library skills, we can help with that too.
Once you graduate, you could be working in a range of organisations such as Western Union, Emirates, Kimberley Clark and more. Previously, our graduates have gone on to work with the likes of UASC (United Arab Shipping Company).
However, if working for someone else doesn’t seem like your thing, that’s okay too – this degree enables you to set up your own business and our enterprise hub means that we’ll support you along the way.

Optional modules are usually available at levels 5 and 6, although optional modules are not offered on every course. Where optional modules are available, you will be asked to make your choice during the previous academic year. If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, or there are staffing changes which affect the teaching, it may not be offered. If an optional module will not run, we will advise you after the module selection period when numbers are confirmed, or at the earliest time that the programme team make the decision not to run the module, and help you choose an alternative module.
We’ll carefully manage any future changes to courses, or the support and other services available to you, if these are necessary because of things like changes to government health and safety advice, or any changes to the law.
Any decisions will be taken in line with both external advice and the University’s Regulations which include information on this.
Our priority will always be to maintain academic standards and quality so that your learning outcomes are not affected by any adjustments that we may have to make.
