Digital Marketing – Live Online

Back to Marketing

In the current business environment, where digital technologies are redefining business models, transforming industries, and generating new customer experiences, digital marketing is increasingly central to business success.

Managing digital strategy has become critical for managers across various industries to establish distinctive strategic positionings. The programme introduces quantitative and qualitative approaches to understand how firms use digital tools, techniques, and tactics to understand and interact with customers, manage marketing activities, monitor marketing efforts, create and capture values. We will focus on two most important digital platforms: search and social and discuss the key elements of a firm’s digital marketing strategy to achieve specific business objectives, the techniques marketers need to master to make effective use of digital marketing tools, and the analytical skills to optimise the effectiveness of digital marketing activities.

The programme covers both the strategic and the technical aspects of digital marketing that enable the students to develop digital marketing strategies that are built on the proven principles of marketing strategy; have a deeper understanding of the digital technologies, tools and platforms available to marketers; evaluate and improve digital marketing effectiveness to meet specific strategic objectives; and acquire an appreciation for the possibilities created by the digital technology in the future business and marketing practice.

Our Live Online programmes offer the same quality and academic rigour associated with all Cambridge education:

  • Delivered by Cambridge Judge Business School’s world-class faculty – Cambridge Judge is a strong research-oriented business school with 19 research centres. All programmes are designed and led by an Academic Programme Director who is a member of Cambridge Judge faculty.
  • Drawing upon the strengths and resources of the wider University of Cambridge and the Cambridge ecosystem, including accessing global alumni and specialists as guest speakers
  • Small class sizes (maximum 30) and high levels of interaction with world-class faculty.
  • Emphasis on quality outcomes – we seek to monitor our delivery against the individual needs of participants. It is no accident that a little over half of our open programme participants come back to Cambridge Judge at least once, often multiple times.
