Course description: Do you want to know why customers choose certain products and brands and what influences these decisions Come behind the advertising jingles to investigate the real world of marketing. Studying Marketing provides you with the understanding and skills needed to align customer needs to an organisation’s output of goods, services or information.

The Marketing course provides business students with the analytical tools for the following strategic decisions for the firm: which markets and customers to serve, with which products and services, and how it will compete. Students study the management of customers, distribution channels, products and brands, communications, and pricing and the use of information for marketing decisions.

Marketing is about how best one can communicate the value of a product, service or brand to customers, buyers or consumers, for the purpose of eventually selling that product, service, or brand. It used to be that marketing was primarily done via word of mouth, and then who could shout that word the loudest. The theory remains the same; the practice has changed considerably.

Marketing is a degree which will prepare you for a wide range of careers. Among the reasons why one may study marketing is because you get to build a solid foundation of business skills, not just in sales. If you’re interested in business, psychology or social studies then this is the degree for you. Marketing covers everything from advertising to market research, so it appeals to a wide variety of students. Marketing benefits society in general by improving people’s lives in two ways.

First, it facilitates trade. Secondly, it helps people choose what is best for them. Marketing is one of the core activities of all organisations, and is about planning and executing the selling and/or promotion of a firm’s product.

Studies in marketing will give you the skills and knowledge necessary to build a successful career in this exciting business discipline, across specialised areas such as market research, promotion and advertising, and strategic marketing management

Some core courses within Marketing are:

  • Consumer Behaviour
  • Market Research.
  • Business Law
  • Procurement
  • Marketing Principles
