By choosing to study a graduate certificate you can quickly develop career competency in a single subject area.
The Graduate Certificate comprises a minimum of 60 points at 100 level or above, including 40 points at 300 level or above in the Graduate Certificate subjects, and including at least 40 points from one of the subjects.
Marketing is all about satisfying customer needs and it'll open the doors to a huge range of careers from advertising and brand management through to strategic planning and product development.
Marketing is essential for attracting customers to purchase a company's products or services. It helps to create strong, unique brands that will stand out from their competitors in the crowded global marketplace.
Marketing is far more than just selling or advertising – ultimately, it is marketing that decides what products and services an organisation will offer, to which customers, at what price, using which channels.
You'll also have the opportunity to study specialist areas of marketing such as digital marketing, brand management, marketing research, consumer and buyer behaviour, services marketing, and business development and sales.
If you’re creative, insightful, interested in the latest social trends and technology, and you enjoy meeting new people, then marketing may be the subject for you.
