The Diploma in Professional Marketing gives you the required knowledge, skills and understanding at management level to take a strategic approach to marketing planning. By understanding key marketing metrics and measurement techniques you will be able to interpret relevant insight and make informed strategic decisions.
This is a one year provision but you can start in September, January or April.
The CIM Professional Diploma in Marketing covers the following three modules:
- Strategic Marketing - assessed by exam
- Mastering Metrics - assessed by written assignment
- Digital Strategy - assessed by portfolio
Blended Learning – Online (voiced-over lectures, with interactive activities and quizzes) plus four seminar sessions per module (approx. 4/5 hours long).
Each module can be achieved as a distinct, self-contained award which can be build up to attain the full diploma.
As part of the delivery of the CIM Professional Diploma in Marketing you will be taught by specialist marketers who have practical experience in the industry, business and commerce in the private and not-for-profit sectors. The syllabus has been updated recently to reflect the changing issues and practices within marketing and to reflect employers' views of marketing in today's business environment, making this an extremely relevant qualification.
