Academic Staff List

Welcome to BA (Hons) Business and Marketing

Innovation and creativity are increasingly important to devising and delivering effective modern marketing campaigns, as rapid technological advancements have transformed the business landscape.

BA (Hons) Business and Marketing at Lincoln is designed to provide students with a firm grasp of the basic principles of the subject. It encourages them to explore the theoretical and practical context of business and develop a marketing specialism.

Throughout the programme, students have the opportunity to increase their familiarity with the international business environment, identify marketing opportunities, and develop an understanding of how to overcome the challenges of reaching mass and niche audiences.

Students who successfully complete their studies with a year of work placement will receive the award title BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Work Placement). Those who do not will receive a BA (Hons) Business and Marketing award.

How You Study

From the first year, students are introduced to the tools needed to develop successful strategies and business campaigns. The importance of digital marketing is acknowledged throughout the programme, and students have the ability to develop digital skills from the outset.

The course examines core business concepts and builds on this foundation throughout the degree. It invites students to choose from a wide variety of business modules in their final year to reflect their individual interests.

Lectures are designed to give an overview of current issues and debates within the discipline. Some of these are delivered by visiting practitioners who provide 'live' case material and can offer students access to industry contacts and careers advice.

The additional work placement year offers the opportunity for students to complete a period of work experience after their second year of study, in order to apply their knowledge in a real business setting. Those students who are unable to undertake or choose not to participate in the work placement year scheme, may have the option to undertake a work-related project such as a piece of consultancy or an enterprise project.

Students who successfully complete their studies with a year of work placement will receive the award title BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Work Placement). Those who do not will receive a BA (Hons) Business and Marketing award.

Students on this programme learn from academic staff who are often engaged in world-leading or internationally excellent research or professional practice. Contact time can be in workshops, practical sessions, placements, consultancy projects, field visits, seminars or lectures and may vary from module to module and from academic year to year. Tutorial sessions and project supervision can take the form of one-to-one engagement or small group sessions. Some courses offer the opportunity to take part in external visits and fieldwork.

It is still the case that students read for a degree and this means that in addition to scheduled contact hours, students are required to engage in independent study. This allows you to read around a subject and to prepare for lectures and seminars through wider reading, or to complete follow up tasks such as assignments or revision. As a general guide, the amount of independent study required by students at the University of Lincoln is that for every hour in class you are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.

As many partner institutions support internships it is anticipated that some students will elect to combine study (minimum one semester equivalent) with work and or a period of volunteering. Eligible students must have completed their second year of study to a satisfactory standard (normally with an average of a 2.2 or above, dependent upon partner requirements) standard and successfully completed the application process.

Potential costs relating to this module are outlined in the Features tab.OptionalServices Marketing and Relationship Strategies 2024-25MKT2115Level 52024-25Increasing standards of living and wealth in society has resulted in more of our income spent on services rather than manufactured goods. In a similar vein, more of the working population are earning their living from providing services. Meanwhile, traditional marketing and marketing units tend to be product based rather than reflecting the importance of the consumption of services and the implications. The more recent trend of sustainable business shifts strategic attention to building consumer relationships through various components and concepts of services marketing, putting more emphasis on fostering customer loyalty and retention. In view of the economic and marketing trends, this module is not simply an extension of traditional marketing. It provides students with an understanding of services marketing and relationship strategies in business to prepare them for entering a broader scope of industries both within UK and international contexts. Topics currently analysed in academic research and adopted by industry will be explored to provide currency and timely application of these insights. The module will include but is not limited to exploring the environmental context of services business and the way the extended marketing mix can be used to evaluate the service environment. Principles of relational marketing will be introduced with specific focus on the development of customer retention strategies. Tactical use of services marketing will be explored to develop customer relationships that build loyalty and increase value.OptionalDigital Marketing and E-Commerce 2025-26MKT3094Level 62025-26The central theme of this module revolves around understanding the various concepts, theories and models associated with developing and marketing an ecommerce business and applying them to organisations, customers and stakeholders. The module will provide students with the chance to practice and conceptualise their own ecommerce business and consider the role of digital marketing in terms of how it contributes to the maintenance and development of an online business. This module provides students with an overview of e-business by reviewing how firms run their businesses, organize operational infrastructures, share information with business partners and communicate with customers. It explores the role of e-commerce (that is, the trading of goods and services through online systems such as e-sales and e-purchases) on market position, competition and sustainability, and encourages student to reflect on the changing nature of the relationship between the supplier and user /the human and the digital interface. The module offers students an opportunity to develop important subject specific practical and digital skills and knowledge that most organisations would recognise as being highly important and appropriate, now and in the future or alternatively would serve them well in the development of their own business. These typically include understanding how to research, plan and manage an e-commerce business, understanding the technical support and delivery systems needed to run a successful e-commerce business. Students will then delve into how to market an e-commerce business learning practical digital skills which will typically include developing key e-commerce website features focusing on the importance of User Experience across the buyer stages and the principles of UX design. Students will also consider and apply digital marketing skills which will typically include; search engine optimisation, key word placement, PPC advertising, social media marketing and digital lead generation tactics to support sales through an e-commerce platform. Decolonisation: The aims of decolonisation both complement and transcend efforts to create a diverse, inclusive learning environment. Its purpose is to reassess and restructure knowledge frameworks and received approaches to knowledge creation and transfer in Business and Marketing education. Our approach to decolonising the marketing curriculum is structured by our geographical and cultural context and allied to One Community values. As ecommerce businesses exist and grow in a global space it is increasingly important for marketing and ecommerce professionals to understand the where and how they operate acknowledging the local operating territory. The module will look to incorporate alternative worldviews around ecommerce business practices as well as ecommerce consumer behaviour. Success is difficult to measure for an emergent project such as decolonisation, which requires individuals to question what they think they know, and to change mindsets. Decolonisation of the curriculum and pedagogy cannot be reduced to a tick box exercise or simplistic curriculum mapping. It is an ongoing process which will continue to affect the reshaping of our curriculum and reconfiguration of our pedagogy in years to come. However, the Module will begin to be informed by the practices of revealing coloniality, informing of historic and present harms around ecommerce business practices with a view to educating ourselves around decolonial approaches at the level of business owner as well as the ecommerce consumer. We will give specific focus to supply chain, human resource, impact investment, social influence.

This module contributes to the PRME agenda by Goal 4: Quality Education - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all Goal 5: Gender Equality - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all Goal 8: Decent Work & Growth - Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for allCoreGlobal Marketing Strategy 2025-26MKT3088Level 62025-26CoreIndependent Project - Research 2025-26MKT3095MLevel 62025-26The Final Independent Research Project, allows students to undertake a substantive piece of research in the context of both their chosen degree specialism and Lincoln International Business School's commitment to principles of responsible management.

As part of this course, students can choose to undertake a year of work placement following the second year. They are expected to source their own paid placement, and tutors can provide support during the process if required. No tuition fees will be due for this year, but students will be expected to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs. Students who successfully complete their studies with a year of work placement will receive the award title BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Work Placement). Those who do not will receive a BA (Hons) Business and Marketing award.

Students who require a Tier 4 visa to study BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Work Placement) will be issued a CAS with a course length that should be sufficient for you to complete the course without the placement year. If you decide to undertake the BA (Hons) Business and Marketing (with Work Placement) and find a work placement as part of the course this will add additional time to your course and a new Tier 4 visa will be required either before or after the work placement to extend your stay in the UK.

There are also opportunities for work experience and career development through various Lincoln International Business School, please visit LIBS work placement pages.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.

The University intends to provide its courses as outlined in these pages, although the University may make changes in accordance with the Student Admissions Terms and Conditions.
