HOW MANY SUBJECTS IN A SEMESTER?

There are off course students who can take on more subjects at a time, but most of our students achieve success by studying 2 subjects at a time and sitting  2 subjects per exam sitting.

5 top reasons to do a marketing diploma

ONE: Tap into your creativity

Marketing allows you to tap into your creative side. If you are witty, refuse to fit into a box, love to write or can write a catchy slogan, then you and marketing are made for each other. 

TWO: Marketing has various options

There’s room for everyone. Whether you enjoy planning, writing, numbers, data, design, wether you are good with words or imagery, or whether you are an introvert or an extrovert – there is room for everyone at the grand marketing hotel.

THREE: Be wanted everywhere

Marketing is needed everywhere. Even at non-profits, for-profits, at schools and hospitals, at insurance companies or law firms – can you think of any business where marketing isn’t essential? It’s so essential, that it means there are a lot of jobs in this field. It’s often just the size of the marketing that differs. Large organisations that view marketing as a critical function may have large and diverse marketing departments, while smaller organisations may have only one or two people dedicated to marketing, which will make the role very diverse. There is no down side to study marketing.

FOUR: Stay up to date

Everything keeps changing in marketing. We market where our clients, and clients keep moving. This forces us to stay abreast of changes and keep up with new technologies. It keeps you on your toes and means that you won’t fall sleep or whittle away in a highly repetitive job.

FIVE: Talk the talk

When you understand the fundamentals of marketing, you can talk about it sensibly and impress your boss (or your soon-to-be boss). Learn about the marketing mix, the marketing cycle, how to manage the different environments. Speak the language of your consumer and be familiar with the South African consumer’s behaviour, the consumer decision making process and types of purchasing decisions. Know your product positioning from your market positioning and embrace product differentiation and target markets. You won’t just sound clever, but actually be able to use all of these concepts and models to make the right decision, every time. 

One of the best marketing management courses to consider is the Department of Higher Education and Training’s National Diploma in Marketing Management N6.

This 3-year course opens up a It’s ideal for post-school adults with a couple of years working experience who want to grow in their current role, move into a marketing role or start their own marketing agency. Read more about our national qualifications here
