On this CIM - approved and accredited programme, developed in consultation with our industry partners, you will extend your existing skills while gaining the digital and social media marketing knowledge needed in today’s demanding digital global economy.

You will look critically at current literature on a wide range of digital marketing theories and issues but the programme is also highly practical. You will work on live case study assignments and group projects while running real-life digital marketing campaigns, applying search and social media marketing techniques to support competitive marketing strategies.

You will be taught by internationally recognised experts based in the Salford Business School. Looking at the challenges faced by organisations in a dynamic and competitive global environment, you will learn to understand the role that digital marketing plays in addressing these challenges.
