Enhance your marketing skills and learn how to create and manage a successful brand, with our Masters degree in Cambridge.

Already have an ARU degree? You may be eligible for our Alumni Scholarship for students starting postgraduate courses.

You know the importance of marketing, both for yourself and your organisation. And you want to grow that knowledge in a digital, brand-orientated way.

Branding isn’t just a concept: it can be a way of life for social influencers and those who want to stand out. The skills to manage that brand are highly sought after.

The world of marketing moves fast, but at ARU you'll learn the skills you need to keep pace, grow a brand and think strategically about its future.

There’s the option to study with us for two years, and gain valuable experience in Year 2, with a choice of professional experience modules.

Completing our MSc Brand Management will furnish you with the skills that marketing professionals need to work in a range of sectors and organisations. These skills are in high demand in the fast-paced digital environments that marketing teams work in.

As a graduate, you could choose to work in a marketing agency, or you may find a role with the in-house marketing department of a company in a different field. Your knowledge of personal branding and marketing in general could also help you build and grow your own business.

Graduation doesn’t have to be the end of your time with us. You could choose to continue your academic career with a PhD programme at ARU. Take advantage of our Alumni Scholarship and save £400 on your fees.
