The Diploma in Marketing Management was introduced in 2004 to cater individuals who have little opportunity to pursue their studies in the field of Marketing with the aim of enriching the theoretical and practical knowledge, enhancing the soft skills needed to be dynamic and novel Marketers. By now, the Department has served many individuals who struggle for knowledge, not for the qualification only. Further, we as a department try to develop professionals not only with knowledge but also with proper discipline.
Students who complete the Diploma in Marketing Management are qualified to follow the Advanced Diploma in Marketing Management and Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing Management subsequently. The Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing Management is considered an entry requirement for the MBA programme conducted by the University of Sri Jayewardenepura and some other national universities.
