It'll be to do with the modules. I doubt it will affect your job prospects - there are far more important factors.

It doesn’t indicate anything about the course content and doesn’t affect employability.

It reflects the decision of a university committee years (maybe even decades) ago when the course or department was first set up.

You need to look at the detailed course and module information. A BA can often include more quantitative modules than a BSc.

A BSc tends to be more technically rigorous and except for outliers (Durham), better unviersities tend to offer a BSc in their business schools. Weaker universities prefer to confer BA degrees in business, in order to minimise technical requirements.. Meaning usually alot less statistics.

That isn’t true. BA/BSc does not indicate anything about the course content. There are BA courses with far more statistics/accounts/economics content than BScs.

“Weaker” universities don’t “prefer” to offer BAs...some universities just had (or have) their business courses within humanities and social science faculties that didn’t have the ability to validate a BSc degree at the time the courses were created.

BA/BSc is a legacy of committee decisions from years or decades ago and not reliant on the course content.

The sole exception to this is where a single university offers a BA and a BSc in the same subject and uses the different awards to differentiate between two similar degrees.

Nope, weaker universities offer BA's on average.

Nearly all RG offers BSc's.

I've spent countless hours looking at all kinds of business courses for fun (nerd, geek, need a life), and I study management (as you know) . I'm pretty sure i know what's going on in my field. 😂

Do some research take 5 high ranked unis and 5 low ranked uni's and you'll see the trend.

Leicester

When you google... BA marketing
All BA uni's.

BsC Marketing first 5

Have you ever sat on a programme/course validation panel?
Spoken to anyone who has produced a programme proposal or programme/course specification?

You’re talking nonsense. I’ve done both of the above at a number of universities (including one of your “high ranked” list in your post). The decision on whether to award a BA or BSc has nothing to do with course content.

Sure. I'm off my rocker,

Unfortunately that list speaks for itself.

I didn’t say that you are off your rocker. I said you were wrong.

As you know I’m not a student but a member of university staff with decades of experience - including in course design and development.

Which courses on your list offer exemptions from CIM exams? That and work experience is the most important thing in securing marketing jobs and promotions.
