Rapid technological advancements are levelling the playing field with regards to marketing, a sector that now recognises innovation and creativity as elements that are just as important as, if not more so than, a large marketing budget.
Throughout this (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Professional Practice) degree at University of Lincoln, students have the opportunity to become familiar with the international business environment, identify marketing opportunities and develop an understanding of how to overcome the challenges of reaching mass and niche audiences. Modules are designed to enable students to gain the tools needed to develop successful strategies and business campaigns.
The importance of digital marketing is acknowledged throughout the programme and students have the opportunity to develop digital skills from the first year.
Students can choose to undertake a year of Professional Practice following the second year. They are expected to source their own paid placement, but tutors can provide support during the process if required. Students who successfully complete their studies with a year of Professional Practice will receive the award title BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Professional Practice). Those who do not will receive a BA (Hons) Business and Marketing award, or equivalent exit award.
