Universities awarded accreditation for delivering quality programs to students

By: admin

As the leading professional marketing association in Australia, the AMI serves a key role as the conduit bringing together industry and academia through accreditation. A successful marketing career is founded on choosing to study the right marketing program. By selecting a program rigorously vetted by Australia’s leading marketing body, you can be confident that you are participating in a quality program examined by an independent third-party, with knowledge of the needs of industry and practitioners of tomorrow.

As a member of the Accreditation Board, Demetri Hughes, longstanding member and former State Committee Chair recently visited Melbourne to award Melbourne University of Technology and La Trobe University with their  accreditation certificates.
