The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) professional qualification is perfectly matched to your marketing degree. As a Dual Programme, you'll graduate with an internationally recognised marketing degree as well as an industry standard qualification from the world's largest professional marketing association. CIM maintains professional standards, improving the skills of marketing practitioners and enabling them to deliver exceptional results for their organisations.
Dual Programmes bring together the best in internationally recognised business degrees and professional qualifications. A unique concept devised by London School of Business & Finance, the Dual Programme initiative allows students to follow a postgraduate programme alongside a highly valued professional qualification, developing a powerful skill set and raising their profile with potential employers.
Working closely with our network of corporate and educational partners, we combine the expertise of leading industry experts with our own experience as a leader in business education. As a result, we develop modern, industry-focussed degree programmes that reflect the needs of modern business. Marketing is a constantly evolving arena, and it's essential to stay ahead of the crowd both for existing marketers and for those moving into the field.
Combining your marketing degree with a recognised professional standard like the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) qualification gives you a competitive edge, with a unique record of both academic excellence and tangible workplace skills that will be directly relevant to your career progress.
You can combine your marketing degree with a range of other professional qualifications including ACCA, CIMA and CFA® giving you the opportunity to add a second discipline to your marketing degree. While your marketing degree will give you an up-to-date grasp of modern marketing principles, technologies and techniques, a professional qualification will develop your practical skills, helping you to progress your career to the next level more quickly.
