Grenoble Graduate School of Business’s application to become a CIM Accredited Study Centre for 2009 has been approved.

Grenoble, France, April 23, 2009 --( Grenoble Graduate School of Business’s application to become a CIM Accredited Study Centre for 2009 has been approved.

GGSB is now accredited to offer the qualification and use the assessment methodologies for the Professional Diploma in Marketing.

CIM is the leading international body for marketing and business development.

This professional diploma is open to students fluent in English, with a bachelor’s degree, and with some professional experience in Marketing.

Judith Bouvard, Dean of GGSB, said: “CIM is recognised across the world in both the academic and professional fields of marketing. With nearly 50,000 members, the CIM label is a sign of quality and a ‘must’ for those graduates aspiring to work in grand anglo-saxon groups. In today’s global competitive environment effective Marketing is often the key contributing factor to sustainable success and makes the difference between successful companies and those which fail to grow. This newly offered Professional Diploma in Marketing is a passport to a fast-track career in marketing positions worldwide.”

In a similar vein, recently GGSB’s MSc in Marketing was approved and accredited for the CIM’s Dual Award Scheme, allowing Grenoble students to gain the CIM Professional Diploma in Marketing by undertaking just two modules as opposed to the usual four.

All students on both the MSc and the Diploma study tracks will also benefit from the CIM network, gain the right to apply to job positions specifically addressed to CIM graduates and aspire to the title of Chartered Marketer further to a few years of practice.
