What you will study
You will study two core compulsory modules and one optional module from a choice of two:
- Integrated Marketing Communications
- Digital Marketing or Customer Experience
Learning and teaching methods
Students are provided with a range of learning materials which are available 24/7 on line. They will be required to read ahead and during the workshop sessions to apply to given contexts and scenarios. The application of current marketing practice to different marketing situations is used to build understanding of best practice, which is then applied to the students’ own organisation.
The compulsory Marketing module is assessed by an examination. All other modules are assessed through work based projects on the students’ own organisation.
In an increasingly competitive workplace and job market, CIM qualifications can be seen as a differentiator. They are both a recognition of achievement, and a way to further develop marketing skills and knowledge, enhancing your career, CV and prospects.
