The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) are the UK’s leading awarding body and professional membership organisation for marketing professionals.

They’ve been supporting and developing marketers for over 100 years (almost as long as we’ve been around!) and they're incorporated under a Royal Charter.

They have more than 30,000 members worldwide, including 3000 Chartered Members.

Their professional marketing qualifications are highly respected and valued by employers for their practical and evidence-based approach to marketing.

After studying a CIM course with us, you'll understand the essential principles that underpin modern marketing strategies, including the all-important 'marketing mix'.

Depending on which course you choose, you could master a variety of in-demand marketing skills:

  • Mastering the key concepts of marketing and how they fit within an organisation
  • Planning and executing multichannel marketing campaigns
  • Understanding what influences consumer behaviour and the marketing environment
  • How to enhance product and brand management
  • Analysing, measuring, monitoring and improving marketing results
  • Using digital tools and techniques to support and enhance your marketing plans

The skills you'll learn will help you enhance your CV, impress employers, and shine as an early-career marketer.

The CIM Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Professional Marketing will teach you the core principles of marketing and the fundamentals of customer communication. It'll give you the skills and knowledge needed for an entry-level marketing or marketing support role.

The CIM Level 4 Certificate in Professional Digital Marketing is perfect for you if you're working in an entry-level marketing role and are seeking a more senior position.

It could also suit you if you're new to marketing but have a degree or a relevant qualification at Level 3 or above, allowing you to begin your marketing studies at a more advanced level.

The CIM Level 4 Award in Digital Marketing Techniques is the Digital Marketing module of the Level 4 Certificate taken as a standalone qualification. It's ideal if you're looking to specialise in digital marketing or top-up your digital skills.

If you're a more experienced marketer, CIM also offers Level 6 and Level 7 qualifications, which are equivalent to an undergraduate and Master's degree respectively.
