Course Description
Marketing is an important function that brings companies and clients closer to each other. It gets your products and services out there, so that your customers can find you. As the marketplace becomes more and more competitive, organizations are looking for people who can provide them with an edge against their rivals, and ways in which to pitch their products or services in new and more exciting ways. A career in marketing can take you into almost any field of business. The ABE Level 5 Diploma in Marketing Management will explore all aspects of running successful marketing operations. Once the course is complete, you’ll have a high level qualification that can take you into an operational or management role.

ABE Level 5 Diploma in Marketing is accepted at many universities in the UK and abroad (see ABE Website), often seen as equivalent to the first year of undergraduate studies. See Pathway below for more information.
