Marketing is often a core management skill often in demand – particularly if you’re looking for promotion, additional responsibility or to broaden your opportunities.
Central to effective marketing is the ‘marketing mix’ – how you determine a marketing communications plan based on evidence and knowledge, which will improve effectiveness and return on investment.
This course will help you understand the different elements of the marketing mix as well as the key marketing principals of product, price, place and promotion.
The course lasts between 15-25 hours and is provided in an e-learning format so you can learn at home, at a pace to suit you.
