How to become a Brand Manager


SEEK Learning
It is possible to work as a Brand Manager without formal qualifications, however employers may prefer individuals to have qualifications in the field of communications. More than half of the current workers in this role have a university degree.

  2. Secure a placement in an internship program while studying. This will provide you with relevant experience as well as guidance and mentorship from experienced Brand Managers.
