Marketing is about understanding customer needs, resources and networks to create value for the customer and for the organisation. MBS marketing graduates are known for their perceptive understanding of business issues, skilful communication and strong leadership. Graduates are employed in a variety of industries, including in communication and customer strategy, international business, consulting and analysis.
