Marketing and Management


Marketing is the vital bridge between an organisation’s products or services and their intended audience.

Effective marketing allows firms, nonprofits and government bodies to tell their intended demographic about their products and services, understand their needs and wants, and exploit the latest technology to do so. Skilled marketing practitioners are therefore highly valued in every industry, and marketing and management graduates have access to a wide range of career pathways.

Our BSc in Marketing and Management will equip you with a comprehensive foundation in marketing and analytical skills that enable you to think critically and make strategic decisions. It will challenge your preconceived ideas and provoke you to consider forward-thinking strategies and cutting-edge business practices.

You’ll learn the essential principles of marketing and management in your first year and progress to more intensive studies of specialised areas like advertising, consumer psychology, services marketing, brand management, market analytics and digital marketing in your second and third years.

Professional recognition

The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) has awarded a Graduate Gateway against the BSc Marketing and Management programme. You will have the opportunity to acquire the CIM Certificate in Professional Marketing alongside your degree.

You will need to pass all core modules and include certain optional modules in your choices in order to gain the Certificate.

Integrated foundation year

International students can apply for our Marketing and Management BSc with an integrated Foundation Year. The foundation year prepares you for the rest of the programme and is taught on campus by Queen Mary lecturers.


I enjoy my subject as it covers so many different aspects of business. I never had imagined that my course would include things that I've never even heard of let alone thought of, also there is so much information to be learnt and that helps me expand my knowledge. We are provided with so many facilities and given so many opportunities to expand on our knowledge and get involved within the day-to-day lives of being a business student.


Teaching and learning

Teaching and research are based on three pillars: governance; social justice and sustainability; and the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).

You'll receive approximately two hours of weekly contact time per module, comprising lectures led by academic staff and smaller seminar groups.

For every hour spent in class, you’ll complete a further two to three hours of independent study. You'll have access to well-designed resources for this self-directed study, and we will pair you with an academic adviser to support your progress at all stages of your degree.


Assessment typically includes a combination of coursework (presentations, assignments, essay report writing, in-class tests, research and project work) and/or examinations in May or June.

Resources and facilities

The School offers excellent on-campus resources to aid your studies, including:

  • a purpose-built media suite designed to support student entrepreneurship
  • a dedicated Internships Coordinator for work experience opportunities and applications
  • a free four-day leadership development course for third year students, providing practical leadership training outside the classroom
  • an alumni network that can connect you to fellow Queen Mary graduates worldwide.

Marketing and Management with Integrated Foundation Year - BSc (Hons)


This programme is designed for students who have completed a good high school education that consists of 12 years study.

For full country specific entry requirements and qualification equivalencies visit:

You are unlikely to be considered if you have completed your education in a system that involves 13 years study, for example if you have taken GCSEs and A levels (or BTEC or IB equivalents) in the UK or the Middle Years Programme followed by the IB Diploma in any country. In such cases we recommend that you apply for the relevant three year programme with entry in year 1.

We may consider applications from students who have completed A levels or the IB Diploma in the UK or elsewhere where they have transferred from a different secondary school system. For example, a student who is taking A levels in the UK, having previously studied in their home country, may be considered for admission to this degree programme. Each application will be considered individually.


Minimum of IELTS 6.0, with a minimum of 5.5 in each component.
