Ever heard the story of how the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) UK became the world’s leading professional body for sales and marketing professionals?


cim-image1 Once upon a time, sales and marketing professionals were finding it hard to gain professional recognition for their work and expertise unlike their peers in fields such as accounting, finance and medicine. Twelve sales managers decided to seize control of their destiny and came together to form what was then known as the Sales Managers’ Association to promote and champion the rights and recognition of their profession.


A hundred years later, today, the Chartered Institute of Marketing is the world largest professional association for sales and marketing professionals with more than 40,000 members across the globe.


In 1989, the Institute was conferred the prestigious Royal Charter status by the Privy Council office and henceforth became known as The Chartered Institute of Marketing. In 1998, CIM were given allowance by the Queens Privy Council to award the Chartered Marketer status upon distinguished members, effectively becoming the only institution in the world to offer the “Chartered Marketer” status. Because of that CIM spread their institution internationally to improve marketing throughout the world.


The marketing profession is enormously diverse when it comes to what you can work with and how you can apply it. Nowadays it has become even more diverse. Now, we are talking about inbound marketing and to being connected with consumers in every communication channel that is out there, responding instantly through chats and engage, engage and engage with customers. Many opportunities for you or your company to be heard and spotted… But to leverage on these opportunities, you have to truly understand marketing. Especially as you grow in marketing, you need to understand how marketing works from a managing perspective. And this is where the Chartered Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing from CIM comes in. Right now, here in Singapore, we are offering this program on a part time basis (once a week from 7-10pm) catering to really busy working professionals-who judged in my experience-is a trade mark of marketers based in Singapore.
