Amasa Media Management in Brand Building online course with Vega School: 1 July-9 September 2021

The Media Management course is designed to develop your ability to implement knowledge of various media tools and platforms in the context of brand building. The focus is on the practical dimensions of media planning and management, and industry experts will guide you through the current thinking around traditional, electronic and digital platforms, as well as guide you through the media 'maths' and implementation of tools for planning. The Nuts and Bolts of Media Planning, which is the learning material, is a foundation for media practitioners. It is a thorough collection of insights, models, frameworks and thought pieces put together by the industry's most experienced leaders (such as Wayne Bishop, Ilsa Grabbe, Gordon Muller, Rob Smuts and many more). The late Gordon Patterson also played a huge role in developing the course together with Amasa.
