Strategic Management and Marketing
The Department of Strategic Management and Marketing prides itself on the quality and real world application of our programmes, together with the support and employment opportunities we provide to our students. " Staff provide learning opportunities to the highest standard and through business consultancy and academic research ensure that teaching materials are at the forefront of business education.”
Andy Rees, Deputy Dean and Head of Department
The department comprises around 40 full-time staff whose areas of teaching include a range of marketing subjects, strategic management, business economics, entrepreneurship and many other real world specialist areas.
Our staff, including Professors of international renown, are actively involved in research and business consultancy, publishing in international journals of the highest quality. Many of our staff are also authors of major leading texts, used by this and many other leading universities.
We enjoy excellent relationships with professional bodies. For example, our marketing programmes are recognised by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the Institute of Direct Marketing (IDM) and the Market Research Society (MRS) with whom we have close links and who accredit our work and, where applicable, grant exemptions from their qualifications.
The Department's stable of courses provides students with an extensive array of options from which to choose their future business path, including digital marketing, advertising, Media and Retail to name a few. The core business themes run through all the courses giving our students a solid business foundation from which to leap-frog into their career. The courses have been designed to give students a supportive and yet challenging and stretching experience, which alongside optional placements give our students the edge as they step into the world of work.
The department has strong links to professional bodies giving our postgraduate students the opportunity to work towards their professional qualifications whilst studying. Our teaching is extensively underpinned by the research we do and the department encourages strategic business thinking essential in the modern business role.
