This degree course is aimed at the aspiring professional marketer who wishes to gain the knowledge and skills to succeed and progress within a career in marketing. The qualification provides a practical insight into the principles and application of marketing at a tactical level.

We aim to ensure you're supported throughout your CIM certificate in professional marketing whilst offering a rewarding educational experience.

You'll be assessed across the modules using a blend of assignments, examinations and portfolio work. Assessment methods used within the qualification are driven by the needs of employers and practitioners, relevant and appropriate for business needs.

Professional accreditation

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Modular structure

To gain the full qualification you are required to complete three of the four following modules:

  • Marketing (Mandatory)
  • Integrated Communications (Mandatory)
  • Digital Marketing (Elective)

All classes take place at our new refurbished Moorgate campus with evening classes running from 6pm - 9pm and can be taken as a full course or as a self-contained award for each module.

Students who have previously completed ‘Marketing Essentials and Assessing the Marketing Environment’ after 2008 as part of the previous Certificate will be exempt from the new ‘Marketing’ module.

What our students say

“I thoroughly enjoyed studying for the CIM qualification at London Metropolitan University. Working full time in the City, the location was convenient and I was impressed with their prior pass rates. Although initially wary of being back in a classroom situation, I enjoyed the networking it provided and found it gave me extra motivation to complete the course. I appreciated the practical experience of the tutors, and found them very approachable.”

Caroline Wright, Marketing Manager

After the course

The CIM Certificate in Professional Marketing will help to develop and enhance your knowledge and prospects within your current company and marketing career. This qualification gives you the practical skills and knowledge to devise and execute tactical marketing activities and gain marketing credibility.

On completion of this course you may wish to progress further with your CIM studies by undertaking the CIM Diploma in Professional Marketing.


When you enrol for a minimum of two modules, each module is charged at £650 each. Alternatively if you enrol for just one module it will be charged at £700. Please note additional fees are payable direct to the CIM for their studying membership and for each assessment undertaken.


Typically students complete this course in twelve to eighteen months but the new modular pathway qualification has been structured to reflect the need for a flexible approach. Therefore each module can also be taken as a self-contained award which can be built up to attain the full certificate.

Moving to one campus

If you're starting your course in September 2018 or January 2019 your teaching location will change in summer 2019 when students studying at our Moorgate campus move to our campus in Islington.

At our Islington campus you'll benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and a wide range of social spaces.
