    Criteria for CIM Accredited Degree

    CIM Accredited Degree is recommended for the following degrees which have at least 33% of marketing related content:

    • Foundation Degrees
    • Undergraduate Degrees
    • Postgraduate Degrees
    • Apprenticeship Degrees
    • HND

    Degrees with over 50% marketing related content can be mapped against the Level 6 Diploma in Professional Marketing/Digital Marketing qualification and the Level 4 Certificate in Professional Marketing/Digital Marketing qualification.

    If the degree doesn’t qualify at 50% but does have at least 33% of marketing related content, it can be mapped against the Level 4 Certificate in Professional Marketing/Digital Marketing qualification.

    Not sure your degree has enough marketing related content to be mapped against CIM Qualifications? It could still qualify as a Recognised Degree.


    Mapping is simple. The marketing content within the degree is mapped against the Professional Marketing Competencies (PMC). There are four approval boards annually where we consider applications for CIM Accredited Degree status.
