The Master of Science in Marketing (MSc Marketing) is a unique postgraduate program that is designed to address inimitable and critical need for professional marketers in both industry and academia. The program is designed to provide in depth knowledge for strategic marketing management and planning skills for marketing professionals operating at strategic level in industry and academic insights for Lecturers of marketing at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. This is motivated by the growth in the number of professionals with non- marketing background taking up strategic marketing roles in most corporations. This includes Economists, Business Administration graduates, engineers and to some extent journalists or Public Relations practitioners, to mention but a few. The mushrooming of private colleges and universities has equally created a huge deficit in lecturing staff in the field of marketing.
This program is aimed at providing advanced skills which enables one to make informed decisions thereby ensuring the attainment of a competitive advantage. During the study of the program, practicing marketers will enhance their theoretical and practical knowledge with exposure to strategic applications in global and local business and marketing contexts.
The program is designed for duration of three (3) semesters. Students of this Msc Marketing programme will be required to take four courses in each of the first two stages, and will be required to undertake a dissertation in the final stage.
Mode of Study: The program is offered in the Evening, and on Open and Distance Learning modes of study.
