The Fiji National University’s (FNU) marketing programmes nurture and enhance the talents of students assisting them to explore their passion, develop new skills and achieve success in the marketing field.

According to the Head of Management Department at the College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies (CBHTS), Suman Narayan, the marketing programme is offered with several combinations, therefore students are not limited to a particular career path.

“Our Bachelor of Commerce with marketing major is offered with combinations such as management, industrial relations and human resources management, finance, economics, accounting, law, information system and banking,” said Narayan.

Students also have the flexibility of attending day as well as evening classes for all the marketing programmes.
