Module Programme
Throughout the programme we will be developing your study skills, such as presentation skills, essay writing, plagiarism, exam technique etc. Whilst they are not specifically listed on the scheme of work, they will be embedded into your seminar sessions. These skills are crucial for your development throughout your programme, not just within the Marketing Module. Therefore, it is vital that you attend all of your seminar sessions.
PLEASE NOTE: The sessions listed may be subject to change. Should important issues occur within the field of marketing or should we confirm guest speakers, then we may alter the subject list/order of delivery. It is important that you regularly check the module area on the Portal for any amendments/notifications! We will endeavour to make amendments and inform you of them as soon as possible.
NOTE : The Reading is a suggested example of a relevant chapter/text. Relevant chapters in any of the texts on the reading list, which relate to the topic area, would also be suitable.
