TWENTY-NINE Marketing professionals were accorded the Marketing Practitioner Status, (MPS) at a graduation ceremony held on September 24, 2019.

Upon completion, those who qualify will be accredited with the Marketing Practitioner Status.
One of the graduates, Ms Nozipho Maphala highly recommended the programme saying her class were now better marketers after having undertaken the programme. “I realised that this programme was practical it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary but it was something out of the ordinary all in the same breadth. I’ve gone into class and I have learnt to take the things I have learnt and put them into theory,” she said. She added: “We are better marketers for having undergone this practical and this course.”
