Abstract :

The concept “lifelong learning “gained prominence in educational discourse as a fundamental right of human being. The adults in the society are affected by the day-to-day economic trends. This challenge may prevent their survival if the educational system is not made profitable and appetitive sector to ensure the success of knowledge-based global economy of the 21st century. Hence this paper is aimed at a lifelong learning approach to significantly shape the global marketing policies in the name of emancipation of the adults in the society. It examined the strategies for promoting lifelong learning in a contemporary society.
