Welcome to the Department of Marketing and Sport Management

The mission of our department is to help you maximise your potential in almost all areas of life through activities ranging from lectures, tests, assignments, group discussions, projects and more. We encourage you to continue on your path toward personal excellence and lifelong fulfilment.

The department has dedicated staff who are increasingly focusing on conducting applied research in addition to their instructional offerings. They are affiliated to professional bodies such as the Marketing Association of South Africa (MASA) and the South African Association of Human Movement Sciences (SAAHMS)

The curriculum is regularly updated in consultation with various stakeholders via advisory members, specialists and industries, to ensure that the needs of industry are met and to reflect contemporary trends in marketing, retailing and sport management.

Large numbers of students are drawn from neighbouring countries such as Botswana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and DRC. The application for admission of international students is administered through the Office for International Relations. Our graduates are employed by national and multinational companies in various positions.

Studying in this department entails more than just the attainment of an academic qualification - it is a formative process of personal growth and development.
