Marketing is a dynamic area of business that connects organisations with the world, and applies strategy and creativity to add value to the customer experience. Our courses cover a range of specialisations, including brand management, consumer behaviour and digital media.

Get work-ready

Gain knowledge of marketing in domestic and international markets, and open up new and exciting job opportunities. At Deakin you’ll put the theory learnt throughout your course into practice and build your practical skills through work-integrated learning experiences – so that you're ready to launch your career in industries such as advertising, PR, sales or media.


Undergraduate (your first degree)

An undergraduate degree is generally completed between two to four years, depending on the pattern of study and any recognition of prior learning you may have. Associate degrees, bachelor and bachelor with honours are all undergraduate degrees.


Postgraduate (further study)

A postgraduate qualification can be undertaken by students who have already completed an undergraduate degree or possess significant, demonstrable work experience. Postgraduate courses include graduate certificates, graduate diplomas, master’s and PhDs, as well as specialist programs for industry professionals.


Higher Degrees by Research (supervised research)

Research degrees are research based master’s or PhD programs that focus on a single area of expertise. They provide students the opportunity to carry out highly specialised research under expert supervision.


Other/non-award courses

Non-award courses are generally single units of study that don’t add up to a university qualification. They’re a great way to explore an area of study before committing to a full degree, and can often be used as credit towards a degree course. Short courses and stand-alone study abroad programs also fall under this category.

Career opportunities

A marketing qualification can open doors to a range of business careers (both locally and overseas). Opportunities include:

  • big data and mobile marketing
  • community management executive
  • marketing assistant
  • marketing coordinator
  • mobile marketing manager
  • product management
  • research analysts, marketing
  • social media marketing.

Study overseas and earn a dual degree

Marketers try to understand why consumers consume the way they do, and at times it's marketers that shape the way they think.
