Industry snapshot

The advertising agency industry in Australia generates $2.3 billion revenue, which is predicted to increase 2.2% in the next 5 years (2017-22) due to a surge in demand for online advertising and positive business confidence. Increasing demand for mobile and digital media have changed the way we advertise, and created a fast paced and challenging industry that is future focused and dynamic.

IBISWorld identifies communication of innovative ideas as key success factors, linking this with access to highly skilled staff with creative and strategic thinking skills.

Growth in employment for advertising and marketing professionals has been strong over the past 5 years and expected to continue.

Our School is also the inaugural Premier Member of The Communications Council (TCC) Education Network.

Other opportunities for learning from industry at the CBS School of Marketing include professional networking events, industry site visits, and assignments where students work on projects in class for real-life organisations.

Postgraduate marketing courses

Our courses can help advance your knowledge in contemporary marketing and increase your strategic decision making skills. They’re modular, meaning the graduate certificate and graduate diploma are stand-alone qualifications, but also count toward the master degree, should you choose to progress your studies further.

Courses are available full-time or part-time so you can balance your study with work or other demands.
