  • The delivery of the programme on a Friday and Saturday worked really well, it meant that you could 100% focus on the marketing without the baggage of work coming with you. The group was quite diverse which meant that we could really benefit from each other's experiences and the lecturers were great. The range of experiences of the lecturers really gave the module delivery real richness and they were very helpful too when giving feedback on assignment drafts and directing us to articles and other sources for futher study.
