"I completed both my degrees, BCom Marketing Management and BCom Marketing Management (Honours) at the University of Johannesburg in 2017. These courses gave me the ability to fit seamlessly into the working world and operate at a level beyond what most people would have expected from me. I was taught  to think practically to solve real-life marketing problems, developed the ability to work in large teams, present to a group of my peers and was given the opportunity to work hand in hand with large corporations, exposing me to the working world. These degrees continue to give me the upper-hand in the working world and the prestige of both the programme and the University have been major driving factors in me gaining employment in large organisations." – Philip Hendry
