Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring and review of modules. Where this activity leads to significant change to a programme and modules, the University will endeavour to consult with affected students. The University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. Availability of optional modules may be restricted owing to timetabling, lack of demand, or limited places. Where this is the case, you will be asked to make alternative module choices and you will be supported during this process.

Train to create and lead the brands of the future, on the first UK course to focus on brand leadership. Brands are everywhere. They shape our decisions as consumers. They reflect and influence culture and society. Brands are ideas that help us navigate an increasingly complex world. They are shortcuts to ‘meaning’, that are essential for businesses, charities and other organisations to define, produce and communicate value. They are big business too. The Apple brand alone is estimated to be worth $184 billion, according to Interbrand. Branding is an industry in its own right, with an estimated 60,000 people working in the field in the UK alone. On this course you’ll learn how to excel in this fascinating sector. You’ll discover how to create your own brands, and how to take existing brands to new and exciting places. And thanks to our links with industry you won’t just graduate ready to launch brands, you’ll graduate ready to launch your career too.
