Digital Communications

Understand digital marketing communication techniques, platforms and strategy. And analyse integrated marketing communications and associated consumer behaviours. You explore issues that influence digital marketing communications and how these impact on organisations, consumers and policymakers.  

Emerging Issues in Business and Society

We live in a rapidly changing world, presenting so many opportunities and challenges for business and society. Draw on thought leadership from a mix of disciplines such as business, marketing, social sciences and the humanities.
This module takes inspiration from the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a basis for topical content. Given the dynamic nature of the global business environment, you also study what’s happening in the world right now. We want you to take a critical approach to your research within a wider theoretical and contextual base.

Final Project

Understand the relationship between the University or your workplace and your own practice in a collaborative process of generating and using knowledge. Bring together key elements of learning to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of practice in a work-based project. The composition, content and context of your project is unique to you. It’s a great opportunity to reflect on your practice to show continual learning and development. And remember, you are taught content to help you successfully manage and complete your project.

Explore strategic theories, tools and concepts relating to the external environment’s impact on strategic challenges and choices. Apply a variety of academic and practical material to your own organisation, or a live case organisation – this will help you appreciate the importance of developing and implementing strategic plans for the success of your organisation, its key stakeholders and society
