    likelihood of specific outcomes and develop
    strategies
  • Management and marketing
  • Management is the process by which organisational
    goals are attained by integrating human activity
    through planning, organising, controlling and
    leading. Marketing is the activity, set of
    institutions and processes for creating,
    communicating, delivering and exchanging
    offerings that have value for customers, clients,

    integrates the body of knowledge in these two
    areas for future business decision makers
