In recognition of the ongoing need to continuously upskill and keep pace with significant changes in the media industry, Meta Media and the IMM Graduate School is awarding online short courses bursaries to four deserving young women at this year’s MOST Awards.
The award can be used for any one of the IMM Graduate School’s dynamic online courses, including:
- Digital Marketing Planning;
- Essentials of Digital Planning; Fundamentals of Marketing;
- Search Engine & Content Marketing; and
- Strategic Brand Management and Introduction to Sales.
Says Kagiso Musi (left), group MD of Meta Media: “At Meta Media we believe that the exponential change which the industry is experiencing is not going to slow down and therefore must be met with increased learning and education. We have a special interest in propelling our young women forward and it is for this reason that we have chosen to be a partner in this educational opportunity.”
“If we are to continue to grow young, outstanding talent in the media sector we as responsible businesses, need to encourage re-evaluation and updating of skills sets to ensure that we remain one step ahead of the game.”
“In the progressive and constantly evolving climate we live in, learning needs to be ongoing,” says Charmaine Du Plessis, CMO of the IMM Graduate School. “You need to be on top of the latest trends, in line with global thinking and have the skills-set to back you up. You could think of our online courses as career boosters or supplements, making sure you stay in tip-top shape to face any work challenges that may come your way.
“You’ll be able to study online from anywhere in the world, in your own space, at your own pace, guided by our industry experts. And by the end of it, you’ll be equipped with the expertise you need for ‘game time’ in your professional career and ‘crunch time’ for your business.”
