What can I do with...

...a marketing degree?

Flummoxed about your career options? This natty little tool helps you find out exactly what you can do with your marketing degree. 



Having chosen to do a marketing degree, you might believe that you’re destined to don some trendier-than-thou black framed glasses, acquire a taste for soy latte macchiato and ‘bounce’ creative ideas around an achingly cool office. However, a marketing degree will actually provide you with an excellent platform from which to enter a range of interesting sectors...



Your head might be crammed full of useful marketing knowledge, but your degree will also help you to develop a wealth of useful transferable skills…

Commercial Awareness

You know the business world like the back of your hand. You can look at situations from a commercial perspective and use your business know-how to influence success.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.


You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.


You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.


Forget 2 + 2 = 4, you’ve got the numeracy skills to give Carol Vorderman a run for her money.


Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.

Social Media

You understand the power of a well-crafted Tweet. You’re a master of the blogosphere. You’re a veritable social media wizard.


You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.



Like any successful marketeer, you should have a pretty strong idea of what you want to achieve by now. If you’re not quite there yet, though, check out the different roles you could secure with your marketing degree…
