Course overview

Growth is a key driver within any organisation and developing both a structured and creative approach to determining where potential or existing opportunities exist is an essential skill for senior marketing professionals. The size, type and form of the organisation can help or hinder this process so an in-depth knowledge of the complexities for the organisation and its context is critically important to facilitate decision making at the strategic level.

This module is designed to enable the marketer starting with a wider view of organisations to focus down onto a specific area – ideally the one they work in or interact with in their current role, -and to facilitate solutions which maximise strategic fit. This module can also be delivered in one of two ways, dependent on the learner profiles: Either specific to an organisational type e.g. B2B or SME organisations are plentiful across both the UK and International markets OR as a generic module.


This Award also forms part of, and receives the same tuition support as, the CIM Marketing Leadership Programme.

What our students say

Working with Thomas McAlinden my tutor has been fantastic. The feedback I received on my draft was seriously impactful and helped shape my assignment in the final weeks. The greatest benefit to me was that Thomas was always on hand to help. Every phone call, email or text was answered and responded to without delay.

In a nutshell, studying for the Diploma, with the great support from the tutors, has given me a fantastic grounding and structure around which to make and implement marketing strategy and activity. It has also given me a lot of confidence.
