About your Diploma

If you’re intrigued by advertising and the savvy tactics companies use to show you products and services that, somehow, they just knew you’d like, you can develop the mind of a modern Marketer by studying globally recognised CIM courses. 

The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) deliver world-renowned qualifications that are designed specifically to give Marketers the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in their roles and deliver long-term success for modern-day businesses.

One of the most prominent challenges that have faced Marketers in recent times has been the shift from print and other offline activities to capturing the interest and attention of buyers through digital means. 

Through this CIM Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Professional Digital Marketing, you can not only build your understanding of marketing principles but the evolving online tactics you can use to reach existing and potential customers.

Through two important modules, you will explore both marketing principles and digital fundamentals. In your initial module, you will be taken through the key concepts and terminology used within marketing. This and other essential teachings will help you recognise the role and function of marketing within organisations, the factors that influence consumer behaviour, key components of the marketing environment and more.

Then, you will focus your attention on the online aspect of modern marketing, by studying the main aspects that take place in the digital space. This will help you understand the many digital marketing tools that exist, their uses and methods of developing and measuring the success of digital marketing content. The skills and more will make you a highly desirable candidate for entry-level marketing roles in any business.
