We are delighted to announce that Westminster Business School has successfully achieved Graduate Gateway university status with the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) for the three specialist undergraduate marketing degrees - the Marketing Management BA, International Marketing BA and Marketing Communications BA*.

What this means for our marketing students is that you have the opportunity to study the CIM professional marketing qualifications without having to do all the modules. This is a significant step forward to ensure that students may gain a professional qualification alongside their university degree to enhance their employability.

The CIM is the leading professional body for marketers worldwide and exists to develop the marketing profession, maintain professional standards and improve the skills of marketing practitioners.

This association, alongside our other professional accreditation with the Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing (IDM) highlights to potential students and employers that we are serious about creating the best possible opportunities for our students to enjoy a successful career in marketing.
