Life for marketers used to be more straight forward. Reaching customers was easier if you were able to create a compelling message based on identifying customer needs. Now, marketers are required to build immersive experiences that engage consumers and seamlessly integrate a whole new range of skills and capabilities.
The Diploma in Digital Marketing is delivered by digital marketing experts and is designed to equip you with the most up-to-date tools and techniques to drive and deliver a digital marketing strategy that will reach, engage, inform & delight your customers.
We are constantly reviewing and updating the modules and content ensuring we are at the cutting edge in digital marketing teaching and practices.
This programme is run in association with the Irish Internet Association (IIA).

We needed a competitive edge in our field of business and this course has been a huge contribution in helping us succeed in where are today."

‘The Digital Marketing Evening Programme was a well-balanced course, with a good focus on practical elements and their theoretical underpinnings. The course facilitators were all experts in their areas and were of great assistance in sorting the wheat from the chaff when navigating the landscape of digital tools out there. I'm now fully equipped with a toolbox of digital best practice that I am applying in my role daily in a variety of ways. The course has equipped me to be more inventive, intuitive and creative in my approach to digital. I'd really recommend the course to anyone looking to be more efficient and effective in their digital efforts.’

‘The Digital Marketing course was really useful in terms of making sure I am up to date with the latest tools and techniques for online communications. It strengthened my knowledge of topics such as data protection and eMarketing, and I got some great tips on writing for digital, SEO and Google AdWords. I will definitely apply lots of what I learned in the promotion of both my own business and in my work with clients. ’
