What you will learn

What does having the CIM accreditation mean to me?

In addition to developing a range of high level transferrable skills and the ability to demonstrate them, this programme is aligned to the CIM Professional Diploma in Marketing.

This means that as an Arden graduate, you will be able to add even more value to your masters qualification by gaining an additional CIM qualification for relatively little extra time and cost.
