Take a long, hard look at both COURSES. Which one interests you the most?
At postgrad level you don't choose a Uni on nebulous stuff like 'social life'.

Hi lil_bun, great to hear that you’re thinking about studying an MA in Marketing at Keele. The course is designed so you’ll be able to develop your intellectual marketing skills alongside your practitioner skills drawing on both the latest research and current marketing practice. Learn through case studies, real-life projects, and marketing literature.Some current modules on the MA include:·
- Marketing Management
- Marketing Research Theory and Practice
- Contemporary Issues in Marketing
- Consuming Behaviours
- Accounting for Decision Making
- Strategy and Information Management
Postgraduate students can also apply for a Student Consultancy Project which is offered as an alternative to completing a dissertation. You’ll be able to apply, under competitive conditions, for areal, commercially relevant, University-agreed project for a local organisation and work with them for a period of 8-10 weeks over the summer. You can read about some of the projects previous students have done here http://www.keele.ac.uk/kms/pgfulltim...ltancyproject/
Dr Caroline Miller is the Course Director for Marketing and she’d be happy to have a general chat about the course with you. Her email is [email protected]
This is what Alex, an MA marketing graduate said about the course "I found the course to best simulating and challenging but at the same time rewarding. The course offered a good mix of work that put the student into the role of a marketer. These practical opportunities were a great way to demonstrate how theoretical knowledge translates into actual decision-making. At the same time the academic side to the course was extremely rigorous. An in-depth study of current marketing literature allowed us to think and debate topical issues such as Corporate Social Responsibility and ethical marketing."
