Program Description

Gives you the basic skills and knowledge required to understand marketing’s role in the organisation and to perform professionally.

Who is it for?

For people of all ages and stages of their career. Ideal for managers in non-marketing functions, entrepreneurs, apprentices and those starting out in a marketing career.

This recognised CIM qualification is ideal if you are working in a marketing support role, or are looking to move into marketing.

What you will learn

  • Marketing Principles (Mandatory): The function of marketing and its role in an organisation, as well as how the marketing mix is used to satisfy customer needs.
  • Customer Communications (Elective): The different customers that organisations have, and ways of communicating with those customers, by building a marketing communications plan.
  • Digital Essentials (Elective): The key concepts associated with digital marketing, and the impact of the changing digital environment in relation to the customer and the digital tools used for communications. You will also consider the importance of digital content in the context of digital campaigns, as well as how campaigns can be monitored.

Successful completion of two modules will lead to the CIM Foundation Certificate in Marketing. If you wish, you can study for one module at a time, and build up to a qualification later.
