This Advertising and Brand Communications (Hons) degree from Manchester Metropolitan University offers it all, and more. You'll learn about consumer behaviour, brand management and digital marketing communications – to name a few areas. 


Whatever the brand, whatever the market and whatever the media, successful advertising comes down to a combination of creative thinking, commercial awareness and strategic insight. The kind of people who excel in the industry don’t just offer exciting ideas, but also have an excellent eye for detail, a flair for communication and an instinctive understanding of their audience.

You’ll get to grips with the media landscape, exploring integrated campaigns that balance traditional and digital channels. Put your creative abilities to the test, turning your own ideas into memorable advertising and learn how it all fits in to a greater marketing strategy designed to build brands.

Along the way, you’ll have access to the real professionals – whether as guest lecturers, campaign clients or placement employers. So, by the time you leave us, you’ll be ready to join their ranks in the industry.


Almost every business is a brand these days. Your skills as an expert brand builder will be in demand from a range of employers.

This Advertising and Brand Communications (Hons) degree from Manchester Metropolitan University prepare you for careers in advertising, digital media, broadcast, marketing and public relations. Our graduates are working in agencies like Carat Media and McCann Erickson or as part of in-house departments at companies like Jack Wills, Boots, and Kellogg’s.
