Digital Marketing

**This specialised postgraduate degree is designed and delivered in collaboration with leading marketing professionals and is highly geared towards the needs of the digital marketing industry.** The one-year course has been designed in line with the requirements of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing and its content reflects the very latest developments in the field, including location-based marketing, user experience, customer journey mapping and mobile marketing. It focuses on the knowledge and skills you'll need to be successful in modern marketing and you'll build a portfolio of materials to present to future employers including created web content, video content, profile infographics, customer journey maps, campaign proposals and analytics. The course offers the chance to complete a Masters consultancy project in place of a dissertation, and we'll discuss that option with you towards the end of your first semester. In the second year of this course you'll undertake study in another country. Employers often prefer applicants who have a strong international awareness. Our exchange option will increase your experience and it'll help you stand out from others. This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and the Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing (IDM), two of the world's leading professional bodies in the marketing field. The accreditations allows students the chance to work towards professional marketing qualifications on graduation through the CIM's IDM's graduate gateway.
