    Specifically undergraduate degrees.

    They only offer management with marketing but there is a huge bias on management with only a few marketing modules.

    Advertising and Marketing are HUGE subjects given the consumerism world we study and they offer nothing yet offer nearly everything else?

    MMU are scrapping there Cheshire campus...who wants to study in Crewe anyway?

    That just leaves...Salford which I have read mixed reviews about plus Salford is a dangerous area.

    It seems to me there is a rather large gap in the market for Marketing at UoM but they don't offer it.

    Wierdly then that they do offer Marketing Msc's.

    You don't need a marketing or advertising degree to go into those career areas - I know lots of people who work in those areas who have entirely different degree subjects. It's all about getting the work experience alongside your degree e.g. working as a student ambassador is essentially working for a marketing team.

    However, if you can't find the right course for you in Manchester, then you should look further afield - there are 370 institutions offering degrees in the UK, so it makes no sense to limit yourself to less than 1% of them.

    Well, obviously, but this is not an explanation is it?

    In lieu of your explanation you could ask why there are 369 institutions offering the same degree when only one would do? The answer to that tells you the problem that lies in my OP.

    I believe there are courses on business and maybe economics, and many science courses offer business management, but now you mention it I've never heard of marketing here.

    UoM is mainly focussed on science (3 of 4 of our faculties are science, with humanities lumped together), so perhaps it isn't seen as worthwhile for the university to host marketing courses when there are others specialising in it around the country? Bit strange that the other Manchester unis don't do it either.
