Introduction
Marketing is an essential part of successful management in today's dynamic and competitive global business environment and is critical to the long-term survival of any organisation. It is about identifying and understanding your customers needs, attracting interest in your product through creative communications, and developing strategies to deliver maximum satisfaction to target markets.

In addition we offer progressively more specialised study to allow you to pursue your career aspirations in areas such as marketing communications, events marketing, direct marketing, e-marketing, key account management and multi-channel marketing.
