The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the world’s largest marketing body, now offers qualifications with advanced standing on masters programs at several leading universities.

Monash University and Swinburne University of Technology in Victoria have recently recognised the CIM’s postgraduate qualifications as being equivalent to half their masters in marketing. Marketers can now graduate with chartered status and the option to study at a top university with the maximum credit transfer possible.

Dr Dave Stewart, program director for the master’s of marketing at Monash, says:

“As the leader in the provision of marketing education in Australia, we are proud to be associated with the Chartered Institute of Marketing, whose qualifications are internationally recognised.”

The CIM was established in the UK nearly 100 years ago and now has 330 study centres in 60 countries around the globe, helping 55,000 marketers develop their careers every year. And the latest study centre to be accredited is here in Australia.

The Australian College of Marketing offers a range of CIM qualifications in Melbourne and Sydney. Emma Blackburn, the college’s principal, says:

“The great thing about the CIM is that their qualifications are designed and taught by practicing marketers in touch with the latest best practice and industry trends.”

Blackburn is also currently negotiating with Charles Sturt University, Australia’s leading provider of distance education. Charles Sturt is about to grant holders of CIM postgraduate qualifications advanced standing on their MBA and masters in marketing programs.
