What will you study?

This course offers you an introduction into the world of marketing, allowing you to develop key skills that you can put to use at work.  Key work place terms that colleagues use become quickly clearer, enabling you to understand and act more effectively within marketing or customer-facing projects.

  1. exploring the benefits of marketing
  2. understanding the marketing plan and your role
  3. improving working on marketing projects, with internal staff and external suppliers
  4. help you to identify areas to excel in your role
