An Introduction to the Advertising Management Programme

For optimal utilisation of the massive advertising budgets allocated each year in the country, the advertising industry in Iran requires the contribution of dedicated experts who are able to present effective solutions, based on theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

Today’s world is the arena of expansive and far-reaching communications, which are evolving everyday at an unprecedented pace and affecting all aspects of our daily lives and work.

Without doubt, the shortage of specialised systematic training in the areas of marketing and advertising, coupled with the general lack of knowledge on the part of the decision-makers with regard to theoretical and practical concepts, is one of the main obstacles toward the professionalisation of advertising in Iran and the principal reason for the ineffectiveness and the poor success the trade is witnessing in our country at present.

By organising the Advertising Management Programme, Vije School aims to train individuals who wish to gain specialised knowledge in advertising and advance their capabilities in the trade, with the hope of developing effectual and exemplary leaders in this industry for the country.
