The UJ Department of Marketing Management has many relations with national and international players in the Marketing and Retail industries and related fields.

One of the Department’s strategic objectives is to enhance its relations with its industry partners. The Department therefore wishes to extend an invitation to all interested industry members to become involved in one of the following ways:

General involvement

Companies can become involved by assigning students with actual industry challenges to solve (click to see examples). This would form part of an assignment or exam project for students and is typically assigned to third year BCom students or BCom Honours students. ​
