OXFORD, England, November 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
The Oxford College of Marketing is the premier supplier of distance learning for aspiring students in Malaysia who are seeking top international marketing qualifications. The College offers training on the global and 'sought-after' qualifications provided by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).
Rosie Phipps, the Founder and Principal of Oxford College of Marketing is in Kuala Lumpur at the British Educational Suppliers Association Asia Forum being held at the Banquet Hall at the Traders Hotel on the 8th and 9th November and is looking forward to being able to talk to people about the college.
Rosie Phipps says, "This is the second time I have been in Malaysia and the growth is fantastic. More now than ever do young people need a high-quality education to succeed. The workplace is increasingly becoming more global and the labour market is becoming more and more selective. The lack of relevant skills brings a higher risk of unemployment."
Do try this Chartered Institute of Marketing level entry test and see how much marketing you know. The test is designed to establish that you are entering the qualification at the appropriate level, and will enable to identify any areas of weakness/gaps in expected level of knowledge for the course.
Log-on as follows:

Rosie says, "Once we can see how much you know we can then give you additional back up at no extra cost. In addition you will get open access to digital courses."
Even if you have a first degree and your first job you will still need to keep up with your professional development and make sure you get your professional qualifications. It is quite important that what you learn is seen by employers as being internationally transferable. If you already work for a multinational it is important that you have the same qualifications as your colleagues do overseas.
You may find your employer is willing to help you pay for your college fees. After all, your increase in understanding of what can impact on your employers business will help them increase shareholder value, long term cash flows, sustainable competitive advantage and brand reputation. Investing in you is important for them as well if they are to keep their competitive edge.
Assignments are based on the work that students are doing for their employers, so the employers may well, for example, get a marketing plan for their business. It is a win-win situation.
