Marketing Undergraduate Courses

Marketing is one of the most popular and competitive choices for graduate careers – and at Derby you’ll learn all you need to stand out from the crowd. We combine the art and science of marketing to develop your creativity, confidence and connections.

Marketing is a fast-paced, rapidly changing industry where professionals with specialist expertise are highly sought after. Our distinctive Marketing degree gives you a solid grounding in the core principles of marketing, communications and business but also allow you to focus on the specialism of your choice so you’ll develop a CV that gets you noticed.

You’ll spend the first year covering all aspects of marketing to find out where your passions and talents lie. Then from year two, you can continue on a general Marketing pathway with plenty of optional modules, or choose a more specialist pathway in Consumer Psychology, Data Insights, Digital Marketing, Management or PR and Advertising.
