How do today's marketers communicate to global audiences and respect diverse cultural sensitivities? Is it possible for managers to deliver a profitable strategy that is also ethical and sustainable?

Our MMan Marketing and Management offers you an integrated Bachelors and Masters degree, allowing you to progress seamlessly from your undergraduate to postgraduate studies within a single course.

This course enables you to combine the study of management with the opportunity to develop marketing expertise. You learn what’s involved in managing modern organisations and understand the role of customers, consumers, the service relationship and brand management.

At Essex Business School, we encourage you to become an independent thinker and act creatively and strategically to help organisations succeed, whatever their challenge.

We look beyond the marketing mix to develop your practical skills in communication, data analysis and critical thinking in order to explore the challenges managers and marketers face, such as gender stereotyping, marketing ethics and promoting products and services internationally.

You explore subjects such as:

  • digital marketing and social media
  • marketing management
  • consumer behaviour
  • brand management
  • business strategy
  • organisational behaviour
  • marketing and communication theories

In your first year, you benefit from a general business education, introducing you to accounting, finance and economics, as well as management and marketing, giving you the flexibility to follow a range of careers after you graduate.

In your final year, you have the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice by completing an in-depth, independent research project or dissertation which can focus on either management or marketing or combine elements from both as you prefer. This will give you the chance to further develop vital employment skills in the areas of research, time management and critical thinking, as well as offering you the opportunity to explore what interests you.

Essex Business School is committed to ethical and sustainable business and we are a signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). By studying with us, you gain more than the foundations for a successful career in marketing management, you are part of a movement that seeks to make organisations better places to do business.

MMan Marketing and Management can also be taken with an optional study abroad or placement year where you can add even more value to your CV through work or international experience.

Study abroad

The five-year version of this course enables you to study abroad during your fourth year. In all other areas, this version of the course remains identical to the standard four-year variant.

You can study abroad with one of our exchange partners in the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, the Middle East, Hong Kong and Japan. In doing so, you experience other cultures and languages, meet new people, and gain intercultural skills that are sought-after by employers.

Structure

Course structure

This course allows you to specialise in the areas of both business management and marketing, as well as providing a more broad overview of other important topics.

In the first year our current students cover the fundamentals that every business manager needs to know and be introduced to the specialisation of marketing. However, we are planning some changes to our first year and we’ll be tailoring it more closely to your chosen course.

In your second, third and final year your compulsory modules will provide a deep understanding of management and marketing, whilst your optional modules will allow you to follow these themes further or to explore other areas.

We offer a flexible course structure with a mixture of core/compulsory modules, and optional modules chosen from lists. Please be aware that we are planning changes to our first year to make it more relevant to your chosen course.

Our research-led teaching is continually evolving to address the latest challenges and breakthroughs in the field. The course content is therefore reviewed on an annual basis to ensure our courses remain up-to-date so modules listed are subject to change.

Teaching and learning disclaimer

Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.

The teaching and assessment methods listed show what is currently approved for 2022 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
