- New online programme combines contemporary marketing issues with strategic marketing practices
LONDON, Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's businesses are under increasing pressure to deliver results because of high demand and increased competition. As a result, organisations – local and global, big and small – are in need of marketing professionals with specialised skills who can stay ahead of rapidly evolving trends. The University of Roehampton's new fully online MSc in Marketing degree programme was developed to provide students with a solid understanding of contemporary marketing issues and strategic practices they can implement to help drive business and revenue growth.
"Contemporary marketing expands beyond the traditional 4Ps – product, place, price and promotion. Today's successful marketing professionals need to acquire the required competencies to contribute to the implementation of their company's strategic objectives while keeping an open window on the world. The acquisition and use of these competencies will help their business compete within an environment of increasing consumer demand worldwide," said Tony Mancini, academic director, management programmes for the University of Roehampton, London Online. "Whether you're looking for career growth opportunities, career changes, or if you're a business owner or aspire to be one, the MSc in Marketing can help position you as a strategic partner within your company to further influence markets."
Contemporary themes such as big data, e-marketing, trend prediction, ethical practice and cross-cultural differences are all woven throughout the entire programme to provide students with a holistic understanding of how they relate to the end-to-end marketing process. The University of Roehampton, London Online offers students a flexible, agile approach grounded in both the online and offline marketing environments, including social media, web and digital channels.
Collaborating with classmates from around the world, Roehampton Online students can learn to create integrated marketing strategies that leverage these channels as well as more traditional marketing avenues such as public relations and personal sales. A practitioner-based programme, Roehampton Online's MSc in Marketing focuses on application through working on projects, so students are able to develop in-demand skills and understand them in the context of the global marketplace.
The MSc in Marketing programme joins a growing portfolio of online masters degrees at Roehampton in areas of study including business and management, education, psychology, public administration and public health. Each masters degree is available for an affordable all-inclusive tuition fee. Roehampton Online also recognises relevant professional experience in place of a bachelors degree as an alternative route to admission.
Through these programmes, adult learners around the world can gain the critical thinking skills and practical knowledge they need to expand their expertise and advance their careers.
