Sheffield Business School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), placing us in the top 5% of business schools globally.

How you learn

The course is suitable if you don't meet the entry requirements for our BA (Hons) Marketing course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other Sheffield Business School foundation year students, then move on to the degree.

The approaches to learning and teaching on the Marketing course vary between modules. You will experience, and engage with a variety of learning and teaching methods on the course, which develops your knowledge, skills, and expertise.

You learn through:

  • lectures
  • seminars
  • problem solving exercises
  • case studies
  • self managed study
  • individual and group presentations

In the foundation year, you'll study wider business topics, while specialising in your chosen subject area. You'll learn useful skills such as academic writing, work in diverse teams and learn to utilise a wide variety of data sources. In doing so, you'll fully prepare yourself for undergraduate study.
