  • Communication: A PRO often has to deal with clients, advertising companies, the press and the public. Maintaining the value of the brand among such people require excellent communication skills.
  • Office practice: This subject will expose you to common and best practice in the office environment – everything you need to know to ensure that the offices run effectively and efficiently.
