UNISA Marketing Qualifications

Marketing is all around us. Everyday we see television ads, hear radio ads while driving, view sponsored posts on social media, and see billboards along the road. You may receive a coupon for a product or be given a piece of chocolate to taste while shopping. All of these things are part of marketing. It even exists when you call a customer service number or talk to a restaurant manager about poor quality food. That is why UNISA Marketing offers a range of qualification for a career in the industry.

Marketing is all about promoting items that are for sale. These items can include products and services. Marketing is a great career choice because it has many sub-sections. This may include advertising, creating products, market research, delivering items, and communicating with consumers.
