Brief Description

The Professional Diploma in Marketing Management is a skills-based programme designed for those who wish to deepen their understanding of fundamental marketing competencies and learn advanced techniques, while building upon skills and knowledge in the area of management.

The primary differential of this Professional Diploma in comparison to other Marketing Management offerings is the flexible and blended learning delivery methods. These methods facilitate a greater level of access to the programme for potential participants who have strong work or life commitments. This blended learning format consists of interactive workshops and self-directed study to empower learners by developing their individual strengths, expanding their practical skills and offering the latest best-practice techniques.

In addition, modular assignments will ask students to partake in experiential learning by conducting market research and creating strategic marketing and sales management plans. Provision of such experiential learning to students can greatly enhance their chances of success in securing employment.
