Marketing still continues to be the fastest growing area of business activity, commanding high incomes and senior managerial positions for those who are able to display outstanding ability as a marketer.
Few people outside of the world of business appreciate all that marketing involves but those conversant with business activities are aware of the diversity of knowledge and skills needed to be effective in marketing. This requires that students have an in-depth understanding of exporting, research, advertising, public relations, and selling, in addition to pricing, product development, distribution and customer care.
