Hot off the press…

nesma will be delivering the NEW CIM Diploma in Digital Marketing – Level 6 from September 2017.

Who is it for?

It’s ideal for marketers in operational, supervisory or management roles who want to develop their digital marketing strategy and skills. It’s also suitable for digital marketing managers, digital specialists and marketing managers who want a better understanding of digital strategy.

What will you learn?

The qualification shares the Digital Strategy module with the current Diploma in Professional Marketing, alongside two new modules.

Driving Digital Experience – This module provides insights into the digital customer experience and highlights how you can adapt to this changing market.
Digital Strategy – Provides insight into how organisations can implement a digital marketing strategy and build these capabilities into the overall strategic plan.
Mastering Digital Channels – This will enable you to drive strategic comprehension for management and growth of digital channels, as well as critical factors concerning compliance.
Each module can be achieved as a distinct, self-contained award which can be built up to attain the full diploma.

If you have already completed the CIM Diploma in Professional Marketing, with the Digital Strategy elective, you will have an exemption for the Digital Strategy unit of the CIM Digital Diploma in Professional Marketing. This means you can gain the CIM Digital Diploma in Professional Marketing by completing only two assignment based units.

Below is an overview of the digital qualification footprint.
