The programme not only taps into current trends, but also looks to the future, allowing you to study subjects that are highly relevant in today’s competitive workplace.
The global marketplace is a complex landscape that is constantly being reshaped by new technologies, emerging trends and shifting audiences. To compete in this environment, businesses must have a creative and flexible marketing strategy that meets these challenging demands.
The BA (Hons) Global Management (Marketing) offers a holistic approach to management studies with a specific focus on marketing theory and practice. It aims to develop you into a media-savvy marketer with the confidence and capabilities to successfully manage teams and organisations across the globe.
In the first year, you will develop a broad-based business knowledge and the core management skills to prepare you for your specialist pathway. You will also gain an awareness of the important role social responsibility plays within all organisations.
In your second year, you will begin to explore traditional and contemporary marketing strategies and practices in closer detail. You’ll approach every aspect of marketing, from the research phase, to promotional campaigns, marketing strategy and sales forecasts.
You will learn how to analyse and evaluate a range of marketing principles from a global and ethical perspective. Through a series of workshops, you will get the opportunity to put your marketing knowledge into practice and test out the theories you have developed during class.
You will also get to study a selection of electives drawn from diverse subject areas to expand your subject knowledge and gain valuable transferrable skills. These electives range from topics such as psychology to public relations strategy.
This programme will develop you into a confident, socially responsible decision-maker. Your experience at Regent’s will provide you with the business acumen, specialist skills and creative outlook to pursuit a managerial role in marketing.
This is a full time programme with integrated foundation. It takes 4 years to complete if you start in September or 3.5 years if you start in January.
If you begin the programme in January, you will complete your second term in the summer (May to August). This enables you to begin your second year in September and complete your degree in 3.5 years. You will study for the same number of terms as students starting in September, but over a shorter period of time.
Subsequent years of study then follow a standard academic year format of autumn and spring terms.
Regent's elective modules
During your studies you will choose three elective modules in any discipline across the University. This is to give you the opportunity to learn about different subjects. You will be encouraged to choose modules based on what you are most interested in.

*Please note, some students may be required to complete an additional module in English language study if necessary.
|Business Management and Problem Solving||
As an entrepreneur and future business manager you will potentially face many challenges during a career. These challenges could range from how best to assess a problem before trying to solve it, to thinking of different ways that the problem could be solved.
This module is designed to give you a solid background to the typical approaches, skills and competencies required for everyday problem solving within a business context.
You will be expected to become more comfortable with a range of techniques that can be used and be able to use more than one perspective to address a range of business problems.
You will find that the skills you learn in other modules on this programme will also prove useful in this module as they help you to think about how best to present ideas and solutions and how to persuade others to accept your proposals. The module should be seen as complementary to the Working with Others and Personal Impact.
Students in general are becoming more entrepreneurially aspirational in terms of their future ambitions. Regent’s students in particular have always aspired to this career path.
In both response to this ambition, but also recognising that many students struggle to contextualise their academic learning in a business context, this module is designed to let you apply and exercise your entrepreneurial skills in a pre-designed format. This will require you to display a wide variety of personal and professional skills all of which you will learn on the modules within the Foundation programme.
Essentially, you will be formed into groups and will start a business enterprise on the module. It is your responsibility to raise capital, open a bank account and market and sell a real product or service. It is on these aspects of business which you will be assessed.
This module intends to utilise the Young Enterprise programme that already exists as a UK national programme www.young-enterprise.org.uk
|Numeracy and Analysis for Business||
This module provides a foundation for ensuring that you have the right numeracy skills for business. Thus some basic mathematics will be re-examined (simple equations, fractions and percentages, exponents or indices and you will learn some statistics techniques (using averages, transforming data into tables and charts, measuring financial performance).
Vast amounts of data can now be stored in the Cloud and a numeric ability is needed to make sense of these data. For example, if via a search of social media, you find that people in ascertainable and significant numbers would love to buy a “retro” smart phone you will have isolated a potentially lucrative business opportunity. In order to present vast amounts of data in a form which is informative, you will need to use some statistical techniques, such as working out that 50% of consumers in the market you are looking at, would happily spend more than £750 on the “right” phone. Having made some decisions, such as how much of a product to produce and at what price to sell, you will need eventually to assess financial performance (mainly by applying ratios and percentages to financial data).
To help you transform vast amounts data into profit you will need to use some software. The module will provide for the development of spreadsheet skills from the moment you start the course. Not many people know that Excel, for example, can solve very complex equations or transform vast columns of data into a few lines of summary statistics, at the touch of a button, provided, of course, you have the expertise to exploit these characteristics. By the end of the module you will possess this expertise.
This module is designed to improve your personal impact. In this sense, ‘personal impact’ can be viewed as the impression made on tutors and peers, characterised by the quality of the student’s academic work, work processes and communication skills.
Part of your impact will be the ability to speak and write in accurate and clear English, which will be assessed and developed as you progress through the module. You will work on a number of different formats, starting with academic reports and essays in the first half of the course. As the course progresses a more applied business version of these formats will be introduced, including a business report, business correspondence, sales pitch and negotiation. These will tie in with Entrepreneurial Simulation elsewhere in the programme.
|The World of Business||
The module introduces you to the key issues and topics that are all relevant to the three main degree programmes and also gives an insight into how the business principles will be applicable in those courses.
The module will develop your knowledge of the fundamentals of business and how it operates in the real world through developing introductory understanding of economics, supply and demand, market and industry analysis and evaluation, globalisation and assessing opportunities and threats. Much of the knowledge learned on this module can be used and applied in the modules Entrepreneurial Simulation and Business Management and Problem Solving.
This module will help you to understand the significance of interconnectivity, to appreciate how it develops, and to recognise how solutions may be applied to many of the problems that arise. Through the application of these tools you will understand the nature of the competitive environment and the options open to modern businesses to best compete within it. You will also appreciate the importance of communication and cultural differences within and between regions and nations.
|Working with Others||
Business success will often come from the ability to work with others to develop and produce innovative products or services. To add to the complexity ever increasing global connectivity and collaboration means the ability to effectively and successfully work with others will be an important skill to possess.
That is why this module has been designed with collaboration at its core where you, the student, identify and utilise your own individual strengths in order to contribute towards team success. You will learn the fundamentals of effective communication, both written and verbal, identify your strengths and weaknesses using self-perception tools such as ‘Belbin Team Profiles’ as well as develop essential skills in time management, critical thinking. The module should be seen as complementary to the Personal Impact module.
This module is designed to equip the student with the key skills and knowledge necessary to perform effectively in the academic environment.

Through an understanding of consumers’ mind sets and multiple branding perspectives students will be able to effectively build, manage and strategically position brands and plan marketing efforts. They will learn to increase and measure the value of brands and link the strategic branding decisions to the company’s market and financial performance.
Initially the focus is on understanding the different perspectives of strategic brand management and combining it with the mental processes that underlie consumers’ brand choices and preferences as a result of both rational and emotional drivers. For branding to be successful it needs to resonate and be communicated at meaningfully and emotionally relevant levels, with consideration for intercultural issues. The focus thereafter is on applying the acquired knowledge of brands and consumers and creatively linking it to the company’s performance. This module introduces theories and empirical studies aiming at a better understanding of the new media technologies and their significance in regards to branding strategy.
This module facilitates progress in a career path towards international brand management due to its strong managerial and strategic approach, including focus on consumer and market insight and economic principles of marketing accountability.
|Essential Law for Marketers||
This module is designed to allow you to explore essential statutes, case law and regulations protecting and providing a framework for business to market themselves effectively in a global marketplace.
You will be exposed to the issues of privacy law, cross border considerations and gain a full appreciation of the conditions that protect consumers.
|PR and Corporate Communications||
This module aims to introduce you to the world of Public Relations (PR) and the role it plays in marketing communications. There is a particular focus on how PR has changed over the past decade through the development of social media and digital technology. Moreover, the module aims to challenge your entrepreneurial skills through discussions on what creative PR is in a saturated marketplace. These discussions are crucial in a world where consumers are co-creators of content, and PR managers have the role of facilitating and controlling brand messages. Whilst the online element of PR is inevitably the main focus for PR practitioners, the module also highlights the crucial role of offline channels. As such, some of the above themes are more critically developed from the Principles of Marketing, Marketing Communications, Marketing Strategy and Branding modules.
You will critically analyse the problem with traditional theoretical models for PR, campaign structures and the leadership issues with managing campaigns. You will develop an insight into the management of stakeholder relations and corporate communications, particularly with clients, bloggers, journalists and audiences. The module will develop the intercultural intelligence of students and their ability to communicate through different mediums. You will gain knowledge on the different types of PR (such as health, education, entertainment, etc.), the different types of PR jobs (such as PR companies, PR agencies, freelance, etc.) and examine the futuristic role of PR in augmented and virtual reality.
The service sector is the fastest growing and most dominant part of the economies of the UK and many developed countries. The scope of service marketing is wide including, amongst others, financial services, leisure tourism and hospitality to not-for-profit and charity organisations. Marketing services is very different from marketing physical products; the difference arise in the design of the extended marketing mix and its implementation. Services are not just limited to service industries, but they do represent a huge growing percentage of the world economy according to Zeithamel, Bitner and Gremler (2012), which adds to the growing phenomena of the internationalisation of services, offering intercultural and entrepreneurial solutions to service issues.
This module builds on the general introductory module Principles of Marketing, which introduces Services Marketing but not in the depth of this module. It is extremely appropriate to Business and Management undergraduates, many of whom graduate to service industries (finance, consultancy and marketing etc.). On successful completion of this module you will have experience of using a toolkit of techniques particularly adapted to service businesses, focusing on the experience of the customer and how this can be improved through processes, good stewardship and creativity.
