Marketing Courses in the UK
Introduction to Marketing
Marketing offers a wide variety of unique and challenging issues to tackle across a constantly shifting landscape of work in the 21st century. A business must sell products in order to survive and grow, and it is the marketing team who decide the best way to do this by researching and satisfying customer needs. Planning, pricing, analysing trends, advertising and promotion all come under the marketing umbrella and there are a number of specific roles which take on each of these areas.
Studying marketing at a UK university will open up fantastic opportunities to build contacts and networks at a number of large organisations. Most marketing degree’s feature a sandwich placement for students to gain firsthand experience of what it is like to work in a specific role. Whether interested in music, sports or the arts, there is a role to sort all requirements in marketing.
Careers in Marketing
Once a degree is secured, there are a wide range of roles to be taken on at virtually any company in the world. Entry level positions can be secured as an assistant, or in sales, while a more hands on role in advertising and market research is also a route into your chosen career path. The following roles are a small example:
- Account executive
If you plan on studying at postgraduate level, then more opportunities will open up. Roles include:
- Event organiser
- PR Executive

All of the above positions can be secured from studying a marketing degree at its most basic level though.
