YOUR LEARNING JOURNEY
Some people working as Marketing Managers have a degree in Business or Marketing. Above all, you should be someone that loves storytelling, communicating and working with others.
As a professional, you’ll manage the communication of key messages to target audiences. You’ll have a wide knowledge of social media channels and have experience with Customer relationship management (CRM) software like Hubspot, automation platforms like Mailchimp and insight tools like Google Analytics.
Working in the games industry is highly competitive and you’ll need to make sure your CV stands out to employers and course leaders.
