Because of specialized skill sets in digital marketing among recent graduates being very attractive to businesses recruiting new employees, we recently signed a cooperation agreement with the Digital Marketing Institute (DMI) based in Dublin, Ireland. With this partnership, we are launching several new and exciting programs in Digital Marketing.
One such program is the Online Graduate Certificate in Digital Marketing of 24 European Credits, which results in a dual qualification: a Graduate Certificate from UIBS and a European state-recognized “Certified Digital Marketing Leader (CDML) / Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Marketing“ award from DMI. The DMI CDML award is rated by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). Upon completion, graduates can continue for a Master degree by earning the additionally required credits.
The new Master program in Digital Marketing of 60 European Credits can be completed entirely online or in a blended format across the campus network in 9 months. In addition to the Master degree, students can opt for a Dual Master in Marketing Management for a combined total of 90 European Credits, also in an online, blended or campus-based format. The other way around is possible too with students from the Master program in Marketing Management continuing for a Dual Master in Digital Marketing. The Digital Marketing degree also includes the CDML award from DMI.
The Graduate Certificate and the Master programs in Digital Marketing will be available from July 2019 onwards. In addition to these new certificate and degree programs, a range of Online Master Classes will be offered also, open to working professionals. Upon completion, graduates receive a certificate of completion from UIBS and the relevant certified DMI qualification. These Online Master Classes are expected to be available from October 2019 onwards. A new specialization in Digital Marketing for Undergraduate/Bachelors students is expected to become available as well.
Founded in 2009, the Digital Marketing Institute has made it their mission to transform the skills and knowledge of digital professionals on a global scale. By offering in-demand digital marketing and selling skills they help professionals stand out from the crowd. The Digital Marketing Institute sets the global standard in digital marketing and selling certification.
