The delivery of the module will include research classes in support of the project, and the appointment of an individual academic supervisor. This allows for the independent, self-directed learning required at this final stage of the learner’s degree.
Module Aim: This module acts as a capstone module and provides learners with the opportunity to apply their marketing knowledge, skills and competency to produce a marketing strategy for a client organisation under the guidance of an academic supervisor.
