The course is assessed via three modules; two of which are mandatory (Strategic Marketing and Mastering Metrics) and two elective modules (Driving Innovation and Digital Strategy) of which delegates must complete one. For syllabus details please click here.

Mandatory Modules

Strategic Marketing – 3 hour examination based on a pre-prepared marketing plan

Mastering Metrics – 16 page work-based assignment

Elective Modules of which one must be taken

Driving Innovation – 16 page work-based assignment

Digital Strategy – Assignment

There are three exam boards each year in December, April and June. You will need to book your examinations directly with CIM with an exam centre convenient to you. For students wishing to take the examination outside the UK, there may be an extra local charge. There are strict booking deadlines enforced by CIM but we will remind you of these.

For the Marketing Strategy module, you will be asked to submit homework and complete a mock exam so that you are fully prepared for the assessment. For the assignment based units (Mastering Metrics and Driving Innovation), you will work with an experienced personal tutor who will guide you through the process and answer your queries. You will also need to work to an internal timetable so we can review your project before submission to CIM. You will need to produce evidence that you have reached the learning outcomes via a selection of digital tasks and will have a personal tutor to guide you.

Study Options

The Diploma in Professional Marketing is available via intensive weekends combined with distance learning, part time weekly classes and via online distance learning.
