About the Programme

This Master of Science programme includes cutting-edge courses that focus on the role of marketing and consumption in contemporary society, its cultural underpinnings and global dimensions. It gives you a great opportunity to develop strategic thinking and top quality skills in marketing and consumption in your pursuit of a successful career in these domains, both in Sweden and abroad. Focus is on understanding consumers in a global marketplace.

Due to a large variety of consumer demands, the marketplace is dynamic and ever changing - with new products being launched regularly as companies compete for consumers’ attention and loyalty. The Marketing and Consumption programme is ideal for students who want to gain expertise in understanding consumers – an area that is critical for success in any market! The consumer focus of this programme provides students with critical knowledge - a distinct advantage over the graduates of other business programmes.

With the global marketplace as a starting point and an emphasis on competitive advantage and sustainable consumption the programme provide cutting edge courses. The programme further offers an appealing study environment - a mix of students with different educational backgrounds, nationalities, and work experiences enriches the studies as well as prepares the students for a successful international career. Up-to-date, practical cases are used and analyzed in close co-operation with global organizations and local companies. International leading marketing scholars from the top ranked business schools also give students the opportunity to attend lectures with current thematics. You will have excellent opportunities to tailor the programme to suit your particular interests, such as marketing system development, consumption development, business leadership, branding and communication, sustainable marketing, and marketing strategy.

The programme consists of 60 credits core courses, 30 credits elective courses from other Master's programmes at Graduate School and a 30 credits Master Degree project. The elective courses can for example be within event and tourism, logistics, innovation management or international business.

After completing the Marketing and Consumption programme the students are employed as web and marketing coordinator, strategic marketer, brand manager, marketing manager, marketing and communications specialist and planner researcher.
