This programme is designed for those wishing to pursue a range of careers in the private and public sectors.
The Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Marketing programme provides students with a thorough knowledge and understanding of both the philosophy and functions of integrated marketing communications and brand management. Students will develop core marketing skills such as analysing consumer behaviour, designing market strategy, developing effective integrated marketing communications plans and formulating advertising and public relations strategies. Students will learn to recognise and respond to the complexities of the modern global business environment with a sense of social responsibility.
This programme balances academic knowledge and vocational skills with a broad-base training in order to prepare students to work within a wide variety of organisations in both business and non-profit contexts. The programme also aims to equip students with generic competencies which are applicable in the work place and transferable between jobs that are highly valued by employers. For example, on completion of the course, students will be able to formulate and solve business problems, analyse information, think critically, communicate effectively and possess a range of interpersonal skills.

University of Hull
Established in 1927, the University of Hull encompasses world-class teaching, research, impressive facilities, and a strong support network for more than 16,000 students.
Independent surveys have repeatedly shown that our undergraduates are some of the most satisfied students in the UK, who enjoy the sense of community on our attractive 125-acre campus. We were awarded 5 stars for teaching, employability and facilities by world university ranking experts QS. And the most recent Research Excellence Framework named us among the UK’s top 50 universities for research power.
Hull University Business School
Hull University Business School offers a wealth of opportunities to pursue undergraduate and postgraduate study and research, all designed to enhance your professional or academic development. Our degrees all build a strong understanding of the complexities of the global business environment to help you develop into a responsible, resourceful business leader.
Recognition from two of the leading global accreditation systems for business schools (AACSB and AMBA) has confirmed our status as a leading business school. AACSB accreditation is an internationally recognised accreditation specialised for business schools, and is held by less than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business programmes. This places us in a select group of UK business schools, assures students of our commitment to providing an outstanding experience and further enhances the value of their degree in the global employment market. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF), a nationwide assessment of research at universities published in December 2014, Hull University Business School was placed 37th among 101 UK business schools for research power (research quality x number of staff submitted).
I am delighted to be celebrating a decade of successful partnership between Hull University Business School and HKU SPACE.
Our collaboration has grown over the years and we are now offering internationally accredited undergraduate degree programmes – Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Marketing and Management and Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Marketing programmes.
At Hull University Business School we are dedicated to providing top quality education and are proud to hold independent international accreditations such as AMBA and AACSB, the latter of which is held by less than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business programmes.
This commitment to quality is reflected in our collaborative degrees in Hong Kong, all of which are accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ). In addition our accounting degree has been accredited by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA), as well as achieving exemptions from many major international accounting bodies.
Ensuring our students are fully prepared for a successful future career in the global job market is the cornerstone of our provision. Teaching is delivered by Hull academics and is informed by their research, meaning that all our students learn cutting-edge theories and practice. Combined with the excellent facilities and support of the International College, students can be certain of developing key skills and knowledge to make them very desirable to employers.
Of course graduates from the programmes are invited to join a thriving community of Hull alumni in Hong Kong, as well as enjoying continued support from both HKU SPACE and Hull University Business School.
We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with HKU SPACE for many years to come, playing our role at the forefront of education in Hong Kong.
I wish you well in your studies.

HKU SPACE 國際學院全日制市場學(榮譽)文學士
HKU SPACE 國際學院提供全日制市場學(榮譽)文學士和市場及管理學(榮譽)，修讀課程的同學在9月得到參與機構的支持，參加今年在香港舉行的世界社企論壇2016。
裝備加入香港創意工業： Leo Burnett HK公司考察
HKU SPACE 國際學院提供全日制市場學(榮譽)文學士。修讀課程中之廣告及公關科的同學，在7月初到訪Leo Burnett香港公司進行公司考察，度過了一個非常充實的下午。同學除了有機會實地了解入行的要求和工作文化外，更有機會跟人力資源與文化、業務、創作和互動製作部的負責人學習。
Leo Burnett Worldwide是全球最大的跨國廣告公司之一，創立於1935年。作為獲獎無數的跨國傳訊集團，也是不少就讀市場學的同學希望畢業後加入的一家公司。
Leo Burnett 香港公司著重humankind的理念，無論創作作品，以致工作環境也重視人與人之間的互動。公司會議室像一個船艙，加上透明窗戶，營造開放的工作環境。公司內的pantry像一間cafe，還有寬敞的開放式露台，工作與娛樂並存，也鼓勵同事間多溝通。
最後，對市場學創意有興趣的朋友，不妨重溫一下Leo Burnett 的創作名言：
- “Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people”
- “When you reach for the stars you may not quite get one, but you won’t come up with a handful of mud either.”
- The work of an advertising agency is warmly and immediately human. It deals with human needs, wants, dreams and hopes. Its 'product' cannot be turned out on an assembly line."
