Opportunity to develop your marketing skills; latest chatter

An opportunity to develop your skills

By John Gustavson, President and Chief Executive Officer

Our goal with the CMA Marketing Certificates Program is two-fold:

  1. To help you develop your marketing skills and advance your career goals.
  2. To build great marketers and exceptional business leaders.

In the past year, we've expanded online access to the program so you can now take several of the courses no matter where you're located in Canada. Our goal is to make this online option available for all courses required for the CMS™ Certified Marketing Specialist designation. And we're well on our way to making this happen.

Our winter semester gets under way in January with two online courses on direct marketing and integrated branding, followed by four classroom sessions on digital marketing, integrated branding, advertising and media and research and analytics.

I invite you to visit our website and have a look at what the CMA Marketing Certificates Program has to offer.

After all, there's always room to grow, whether you're just entering the marketing profession or have years of experience and are looking to develop skills that will:

  • help you do your job better and help you get the next promotion;
  • provide your organization with the tools needed to sustain a competitive advantage and operate at a higher performance level.
