At the University of Bolton, we provide a wide range of courses, degrees, and studying options for all of our undergraduate and postgraduate students. After all, your higher education should be flexible enough to suit your individual needs, that’s #UniAsItShouldBe.
Whatever your career ambitions are, you’ll quickly discover that our supportive staff do everything they can to help you learn in a friendly and positive environment. This student-first approach helped us be awarded No.1 for Student Satisfaction* three years in a row.
Topping up your Business Management education at our Institute of Management Greater Manchester facility is a fantastic way to ready yourself for a successful career. Here are four reasons why.
What is a Top-up Degree?
Let’s take a quick look at what’s involved in a Top-up degree.
Top-up degrees are designed for students looking to build on an existing qualification. It’s for people that have completed a foundation level qualification in a similar field, and are looking to expand their knowledge.
The Top-up effectively completes the final year of an Honour’s degree. This means that you don’t have to start from the beginning all over again. Instead, you can enhance your skills, focus on a specialist subject, and graduate with an Honours-level qualification, in this case, marketing skills.
4 Reasons You Should Top-up with Marketing
In the space of a single year, our top-up degree builds on your previous studies and boosts your employability. Here are just four reasons why you should consider joining one of the UK’s Top 50 Universities^ this January and adding to your skillset.
Give Yourself the Advantage
Business is competitive, there’s no denying that. When you decide to specialise in marketing and seal an additional qualification, you’ll have the advantage when it comes to starting your career.
In addition, you’ll have the chance to gain valuable exemptions from some of the professional qualifications offered by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).
You’ll Develop Specialist Skills
The majority of Business Management graduates have a degree that focuses on a general approach to business. Very few students graduate with skills from a specialist subject.
Our Business Management (Marketing) Top-up gives you the opportunity to learn about the topic that suits your skills. You become an expert in something you’re already naturally interested in while showcasing your knowledge to future employers.
Intelligent Marketing is Essential for Modern Businesses
Take our word for it, marketing isn’t going out of business anytime soon.
Companies large and small take marketing seriously, and with good reason. Intelligent marketing attracts vital new business, communicates with customers on a colossal scale, and gives companies a competitive edge.
You’ll Be Industry-Savvy
Our experienced Business Management lecturers have important connections within the industry. They’ve designed this top-up course to provide you with the skills you’ll need for a successful career.
You can expect to dissect real-life case studies, hear from established industry guest speakers, and pick the brains of trendsetters during industry visits. You’ll come to understand the marketing environment and the ways that business works on both local and international levels.
You Graduate with a Powerful Dual Award
When you graduate from Bolton University, you’ll leave with a BSc (Hons) in Business Management with Marketing. That alone shows that you have the Honours-level skills and specialist knowledge you need to begin your career.
But on top of that, you’ll receive a CMI Level 5 Award in Leadership and Management. This additional qualification gives you access to global career opportunities.
