Employers are increasingly looking for graduates with broad knowledge, as well as specific expertise in one aspect of the marketing mix. Our Marketing Communications courses have been designed to not only meet the needs of employers, but to also help you stand out from the crowd with additional professional qualifications.
- Marketing Communications with Advertising

The Marketing Communications with Advertising pathway has been designed to produce visionary marketing communications professionals with specific knowledge and skills in advertising, including branding, strategy, creative, research and analysis, media planning and general innovation in the sector.
Not only will you graduate with a degree from Bournemouth University but, as this course has been awarded Graduate Gateway status by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the leading international body for marketing and business development, you'll have the opportunity to gain professional qualifications through the CIM Graduate Gateway scheme during your studies. You will also be encouraged to achieve the Institute of Practioners in Advertising Certificate.
