In light of the increasingly competitive landscape in several industrial sectors, it has become imperative that organisations effectively and strategically execute their marketing functions. Marketing ensures that products, services and ideas are effectively managed to deliver a competitive edge to profit and not-for-profit organisations. This situation calls for well-trained personnel that would effectively apply marketing concepts and techniques to enhance the marketing orientation of their organisations in order to deliver their value proposition to customers.

Due to the exigencies of work, family commitments and other duties, many interested and qualified people are not able to pursue a two year-full time programme in marketing. This Sandwich Masters Programme is therefore designed to enable such people access high quality education, while at the same time attending to their respective duties effectively.

This course aims at enabling students understand and apply marketing concepts and techniques at an advanced level. The course helps to develop critical marketing management skills needed to fill more senior roles within various organisations. It also enables students to develop and enhance the marketing orientation of their organisations. Graduates of the MA Marketing Strategy programme will develop the capacity to perform at strategic marketing levels within their various organisations.
