By studying the MSc Digital Marketing Management, you will be given the opportunity to explore a variety of topics related to digital marketing management.
Through a strong focus on corporate engagement, the course should enable you to learn a wide range of transferable skills which may enhance your potential future employability. You may be tasked with producing a digital marketing project, examining the impact of digital and disruptive technology for marketing, exploring how to communicate ideas to different audiences, undertaking online presentations and taking part in a simulated electronic business game.
The course also grapples with the rise of disruptive technologies, that could significantly alter the way businesses or industries operate – in recent years, some of these disruptions have had a major impact on marketing, with technologies such as blockchain, or the availability of big data, altering the way firms do business. The module ‘Disruptive Technology in Marketing’ seeks to build your understanding of how these technologies can benefit marketers, particularly in the digital space, and challenge you to manage the risks also associated with them,
Other areas covered on the course include how to manage digital marketing projects, which can be complex in their scope and usage of technology, and how to effectively examine and interpret digital marketing analytics, an essential tool in informing strategic marketing decisions from a management perspective. When coupled with a module focused on consumer behaviour, you will explore how organisations build their knowledge of people’s behaviours online, and ensure campaigns are effective in an increasingly digitised business environment.
When learning about digital marketing management, the course should help you develop a range of transferable and relevant skills such as developing an understanding of consumer behaviour as well as producing a marketing communications situations analysis and undertaking a boardroom pitch of a marketing communications campaign for a client. You will also examine how to manage global marketing teams.
