The Marketing Academy Virtual Campus

Why we developed the Virtual Campus

We believe that marketing, media and advertising at its best is the means to create a powerful & meaningful impact on our planet.

The only function and industry that truly influences the way people think, the choices they make and the decisions they take. For this collective power to be wielded in a positive way, our talent needs to be nurtured & developed.

We deliver programs which ensure the commercial and positive social impact of marketing, media and advertising is felt in every board room, now and in the future. A future which is in the hands of today’s talent. We also believe that money should not be a barrier to development. So, whilst highly selective, all our programs are delivered free of charge.

During the last decade we have developed over 1,000 leaders through our Scholarship and Fellowship Programs and its now time to spread the learning even further. Enter, the Virtual Campus. The Marketing Academy Virtual Campus will inspire thousands of high potential talent around the world with a free development syllabus packed full of money can’t buy experiences and world class content. Through our Virtual Campus we will equip the industry’s talent with the values, beliefs, behaviours and skills to be outstanding leaders and inspire them to achieve world changing results.
