Marketing Management is very important in business. If Marketing did not exist then businesses would not exist either, as no one would know about them. Marketing communicates to the outside world that a company has products and services that can benefit the customer, solve their problems and make their life better in some way.
This is a very exciting and interesting field to work in. You get to involve yourself in the latest and greatest marketing campaigns in television, newspapers, magazines, radio, and in-store promotions. Careers in Marketing are ones that you can enjoy and thrive in.

What Exactly Does a Marketing Manager do?
A Marketing Manager deals with a company’s marketing campaigns, renewing subscribers, newsletters, social media, advertising and publicity events. They also work with the creative teams for both digital and print media.
It is important to remember that a Marketing Manager is not the same as a Marketing Director. A Marketing Manager focusses on what needs to be done to achieve the marketing goals. A Marketing Director focusses on why those actions need to be taken and on how those actions can be implemented.
Why is Marketing Management Important?
Marketing is essential to any business as it helps to make people aware of a company and it’s products and services. Without marketing, a company cannot gain customers and that means that the company can’t grow, make money or survive.

Where can I go to Study?

With distance learning, you will be able to study no matter where in South Africa you are.

You Talk About Accredited and non-accredited Programmes. What is the Difference and is one Better Than the Other one?
An accredited programme is one that gives you a recognised qualification. A non-accredited one does not. That doesn’t mean one is better than the other. An accredited programme might give you a little bit better chance to find a job or get paid more, but a non-accredited one is not without value. Non-accredited courses might not give you a recognised qualification but they still show employers that you are serious about your own development. They are also cheaper to do than accredited courses, and they normally don’t require you to have a matric certificate. It is up to you to decide if you want to do an accredited or non-accredited course but both of them are a step in the right direction.
