This business course with a specialism in marketing offers the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of marketing functions. As part of your course you will explore the theories and principles of modern day marketing such as market research, database marketing, consumer behaviour, marketing communications and not-for-profit marketing and how these translate into marketing practice.
