This exciting new programme aims to develop the intellectual, analytical and perceptual skills of students by providing them with a breadth of knowledge in Marketing, together with the transferable skills that are necessary to be job ready, and also to carry out strategic marketing in new and challenging contexts.
The BSc Business Management with Marketing programme will enable students to establish a strong foundation in the area of business with an emphasis on Marketing through years two and three.
Joseph Mortimer discusses his time studying the BSc Business Management programme.
In particular this programme was developed with industry input and - as such - places great importance on students acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed in the world of marketing. Students enrolled in the programme will be required to undertake modules in:
- Principles of Marketing
- Marketing Management
- Consumer Behaviour
- Marketing Research
- Services and Relationship Marketing
- Marketing Analytics.
Each of these is attuned to the necessary skills of the modern day marketer. In addition to these modules, students may specialise in other key areas of marketing to suit their interests.
Further to this, students’ on this programme will benefit from Birmingham Business School’s strong links with practitioners from large and small marketing firms such as Unilever, Beiersdorf, Big Cat, UBAglu and Cogent Elliott.
The underlying philosophy of the programme therefore is that students study all aspects of Business Management and develop a speciality in Marketing to equip them with contemporary marketing knowledge to enable them to perform the various roles of marketing practitioners.
This programme will offer the opportunity to specialise in a popular subject area whilst simultaneously learning about a broader subject area.
This year lays the foundation for the study of business. It introduces the key themes of: management; marketing; economics; finance; law; purchasing; and analytical techniques and IT for business.
The year complements but does not duplicate the content of the Business Studies A level. In the Analytical Techniques for Business and IT module you will be streamed according to your qualifications in Mathematics and Statistics.
Second and third years
In these years you have the ability to build your degree depending on your interests and career aspirations. We’re constantly updating the range of modules on offer to reflect the ever-changing world of business. This ensures that your degree remains sufficiently generalist to give you a wide choice of career options on graduation.
If you want to take advantage of a unique opportunity to be supported with a work placement opportunity as part of your final year, this course includes the opportunity to undertake a 'Professional Development' module as part of your optional module choices.

Key Information Sets (KIS) are comparable sets of information about full- or part-time undergraduate courses and are designed to meet the information needs of prospective students.
All KIS information has been published on the Unistats website and can also be accessed via the small advert, or ‘widget’, below. On the Unistats website you are able to compare all the KIS data for each course with data for other courses.
The development of Key Information Sets (KIS) formed part of HEFCE’s work to enhance the information that is available about higher education. They give you access to reliable and comparable information in order to help you make informed decisions about what and where to study.
The KIS contains information which prospective students have identified as useful, such as student satisfaction, graduate outcomes, learning and teaching activities, assessment methods, tuition fees and student finance, accommodation and professional accreditation.
