Marketing plays a key role in the success of any organisation. It is not just about advertising and selling, but also a process of creating value for customers and building customer relationships.

The BA Marketing programme will provide you with the knowledge, skills, business awareness and confidence that will enable you to succeed in marketing and the wider business world. By learning how firms identify their target markets, position their products, and satisfy their customers' needs through a range of marketing strategies, you will learn to appreciate the nature and role of marketing in creating competitive advantage for an organisation.
