After university degrees, qualifications from The Chartered Institute of Marketing are the most sought after by employers.

Studying for a University Degree which is accredited by the CIM, can enhance your marketing career and give you the opportunity to gain a professional qualification alongside your marketing degree.

As some marketing or business degrees cover core elements of the CIM qualification syllabi; CIM Accredited Degrees offer the benefit of exemptions from qualification assessments, saving you time and money.

Why Study for A CIM Qualification?

The Chartered Institute of Marketing offer a range of professional marketing and digital marketing qualifications, which are designed to help you as a professional or aspiring marketer to develop the core skills you need for a successful career.

According to a CIM Alumni Survey, over a third of CIM graduates get promoted or receive a pay rise within 12 months of graduating. While 60% of CIM graduates are more respected at work and given more responsibility.

What is a CIM Accredited Degree?

A CIM Accredited Degree is a university degree or postgraduate qualification that has been approved by CIM for quality of content as well as being mapped to CIM’s professional marketing qualifications.

Students studying for, or who have recently completed, a CIM Accredited Degree have the opportunity to study for a CIM professional qualification alongside their degree or in a shorter period after completing it.

Content from degree courses from over 130 institutes have been evaluated alongside CIM qualifications to enable exemptions to be applied to gaining CIM Certificate in Professional Marketing and CIM Diploma in Professional Marketing.  This means graduates from participating Universities may only have to submit one assessment instead of the usual three. This can reduce the duration to gain CIM qualification by two-thirds and provide a potential saving of up to £300 in assessment fees.

How Long Do I Have to Complete CIM Modules After Graduating?

After graduating with a CIM Accredited Degree, you have up to five years to complete any remaining modules to gain your CIM professional qualification.

What Are My Study Options?

Providing that you achieve a 2:2 or above at undergraduate level, or a pass mark at postgraduate level, you can complete your CIM professional qualification at one of the CIM’s approved study centres, including Oxford College of Marketing.
