What our students say

Thanks for the day – it was excellent in every respect: Great venue, Great speakers, Great delegates, Great structure, Great food, Great weather. Please invite me again next time!

Nick Taylor Marketing Director Emerson Process Management

The marketing college is renowned within the area for the student support and quality teaching. I also found the experience increased my confidence and meeting other marketing colleagues in other industries was fundamental to applying marketing tools in other scenarios outside of my own company.

CMC Cambridge Alumnus

The tutors were great, really informative and great at facilitating discussion. The focus was not for us to pass the exams, it was for us to challenge ourselves and each other around the subject matter. The breadth of experience and backgrounds of the other candidates really helped to add real life examples to the theory. I would fully recommend the course and college.

CMC Alumnus

Thanks again, you and the College have been absolutely great and really do cater for people who study "on the job".

CIM Diploma Student

I would also like to take this opportunity to say that to date the quality of information and service provided has been second to none - in fact I would go so far as to say the difference is like night and day between my previous college and Cambridge Marketing College.

CIM Student

Thank you for inviting me to present to Cambridge Marketing College which in itself is a fantastic marketing achievement.

Philip Kotler Emeritus Professor Kellogg School of Management

Cambridge Marketing College has amazing tutors, friendly administration staff and great teaching material.

CIM Diploma Student

 The material supplied is excellent, much better than my previous College.

Jan Dully CAM Student

I've enjoyed every minute of my studies with Cambridge Marketing College. The tutors are experienced, can discuss any Marketing issue put to them and provide appropriate real life examples. The College is excellently run and I have always felt valued. I would thoroughly recommend studying for a CIM qualification at CMC.

Emma Gooderham Managing Director Allies Computing

I just want to thank you all for the tremendous time I had studying for my CAM qualification. Each of the modules was delivered by industry experts who were clearly very experienced, knowledgeable and passionate about their particular subject. I for one now feel more confident about my own marketing skills and knowledge, and am empowered to apply them on a daily basis within my current organisation. Thank you for all that you did to support, challenge and educate me during this time.

Katie Hart Founder Rhetonic

I was very impressed by the approach and support offered by Cambridge Marketing College. Having transferred into the College from another study centre halfway through the qualification I feel that the standard offered is far superior and I wish I had started studying with Cambridge Marketing College from the start!

Postgraduate Diploma Student

The teaching and method of learning at CMC - weekend attendance combined with home study - really suited my lifestyle; it accommodated my full time work, helped me manage my family, and the tutors and structure of the courses and materials really gave me the flexibility I needed. My thirst for learning was definitely re-engaged as a result of my positive experience at CMC.

Lia Young Attorney Caterpillar

Shane and all the people I and my colleagues spoke to were great – patient, supportive, efficient and friendly.

Lynwen Davison Communications Officer Derbyshire County Council

Thank you for an enjoyable revision day - it was a great boost!  It was an interesting and informative session and the learning/study methods will be very useful to me.  The venue was amazing and felt more like being in a hotel than at college!

Claire Salerno Marketing Consultant

I will update my profile to add my Diploma with CMC - which I still view as the best postgrad training/learning I have experienced.

Simon Whitmarsh-Knight Global Marketing Leader INVISTA

Compared to my previous study centre, very high quality, value-adding approach.
