BSc (Hons) Marketing Management (Study Abroad)
UCAS code: N504
This four-year degree differs from the BSc Marketing (Study Abroad) and the BSc Marketing Management in that you are offered both the opportunity to spend your second year studying at one of our partner institutions in North America or Australasia and a third year spent on a supervised work placement. In your final year you will complete a dissertation based on this placement. We will help you secure your placement, supervise your placement year and support your completion of a related dissertation. Qualification for the study abroad year and the work placement year will depend on first year performance at Lancaster.
Feedback from graduate employers suggests that the work experience engenders additional insights and experiences that are difficult to generate through traditional degree programmes.
