Study at Vega to future-proof your career
It’s a reality that many students are jobless for months, or even years, after graduating. To an extent, this failure is rooted in the fact that not all tertiary qualifications or education experiences are geared towards helping young people build sustainable, successful careers.
Vega, an educational brand of The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE), ensures its students are equipped with the tools and confidence they need to succeed in their careers, and to make valuable contributions to their professions and industries at large.
While Vega has a reputation for being a great communication, design and business school, the private education provider is continuously evolving to ensure that the next generation of leaders are prepared for careers in a variety of industries – not just marketing or advertising. For this reason, all qualifications available to study at Vega teach complex problem solving, critical thinking and creativity – the top three skills listed on the World Economic Forum’s 2016 study, The Ten Skills You Need to Thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
“Our motto is ‘wisdomwithmagic’, which speaks to our goal of graduating a new breed of thinkers,” says Shevon Lurie, Managing Director at Vega School. “We train naturally creative students to think strategically, and born strategists to think creatively, because we want our graduates to become professionals who push the envelope and strive for change in the world.”
The BA in Strategic Brand Communications, for example, equips students with strategic skills so they can identify, explore and solve pressing brand communication challenges creatively. Similarly, the BCom Strategic Brand Management degree combines business, financial and strategic skills to ensure students can build strong brand and business strategies. The BCom Digital Marketing degree trains future digital marketers to apply search engine, mobile and online marketing insights in the planning and implementation of digital marketing strategies, emphasising the role of data in this fast-growing and increasingly important career.
