Master of Business Administration – Marketing (MBA-Marketing)

TAPMI’s Master of Business Administration in Marketing (MBA – Marketing) is a specialist Marketing program. The program provides foundational training in broad business and management disciplines and specialist training in Marketing. The program is designed to dedicate 65% of total learning time for Marketing and balance 35% for interdisciplinary learning. Unlike a typical MBA where students choose their specialization in the second year, TAPMI’s MBA- Marketing creates an opportunity for intensive focus on Marketing from the very first year. The strong functional foundation laid in the first year, then provides an opportunity for advanced marketing learning in the second year.

The MBA- Marketing program has received an “Accredited degree” status from the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), UK and the Australian Marketing Institute (AMI). The accreditation provides a two-level waiver for CIM professional certification for the MBA Marketing students. It provides an opportunity to acquire “Chartered Marketer” status and networking opportunities with around 20,000+ CIM alumni in over 100 countries.

TAPMI launched the MBA Marketing program in the academic year 2019-2020. The program is designed with an important insight that in the early stage of career the functional knowledge and expertise will be more relevant in most job roles.
