Overview

For marketing leaders, it’s clear that the future is in highly relevant, timely and personalised customer experiences.

It’s also clear that knowing how to transform your marketing is the way to get there. What’s more difficult is creating a roadmap that fits - and getting the buy-in to make it happen.

With a constant barrage of platforms, apps, technologies and tools, as well as consumer demand for personalised experiences, many marketers are struggling to know how to lead their department towards digital maturity.
To bridge this gap, RMIT Online, in collaboration with leading industry partners and academics, has co-designed the Graduate Certificate in Digital Marketing Leadership.
