Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programmes
This is genuinely one of those ‘money can’t buy’, once in a lifetime opportunities
I’m still coming down from the high! I am changed as a person in the best possible way, and I found this experience incredibly rewarding and fulfilling from both a professional and personal perspective.
Hands down the best thing I have done for my career. Great people, inspiring mentors, motivating coaches and a really reliable support network. Highly recommended.
The Marketing Academy Scholarship Program is the start of an amazing journey that has helped me realize the leader I already was. I’m now able to articulate my passion, have a clear purpose and have a network of amazing people who have all been on this journey together. ItÕs helped me realize what my potential can be whilst unleashing a passion to inspire and influence people in my life to think about things differently and be the change they want to see.
The Marketing Academy has made me believe in myself and my potential as a leader in a way I’d never fully felt, and backing it up with an MBA-level network of peers and C-suite mentors who I feel comfortable calling on for virtually anything to support my continued growth.
I’m not one for soppy stories but I have truly become a better person as an output of the Scholarship. Never have I revised, reflected and refined myself so much. I am truly grateful to have been given the time to just think about the leader I want to be, not have to be. Priceless.
A one-of-a-kind leadership development experience every marketer wish they had.
If Carlsberg did networks…
A tribe of kinfolk bonded by a desire to change the world through marketing, the power of shared vulnerability, and the collective belief that by taking charge of our own histories & narratives we empower those we influence to do the same. (Quote by Derek Daniels – who says it better than I ever could!)
The Marketing Academy is rocket fuel for your career and personal development. Just being around 30 fantastic, sharp people for 12 months, is beneficial in itself. Adding world class leadership training to the equation, a business coach and the chance to assist a small charity, and you have an enormously powerful program. Quite simply you’ll never be the same again after being an MA Scholar.
The Marketing Academy Scholarship is the best of it’s kind in the the UK, if not the world. A bold statement, I know, but here is why. The program has been carefully crafted and is made up of several elements including a life changing leadership course, days spent with industry leading organisations, 1:1 coaching as well as mentoring sessions with the most inspirational CMOs and CEOs in business. As if this wasn’t enough, I have built a peer network that is filled with some of the most incredible people I could have hoped to meet!
Life changing. I was able to find my why and purpose as to why I exist in this ever so complex world!
The Marketing Academy has been a truly life changing, and life affirming experience. It has totally changed the way in which I view the opportunities that are presented to me, how I deal with challenges and conflict, and the role that I play as both a colleague and a leader in my organisation. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Apply! Apply!
The Marketing Academy has been quite simply the most career-defining programme that I have ever been on. As well as providing access and insights from some amazing leaders across industries, the course also forces you to examine your own beliefs, motivations and ways of working. It is almost impossible not to come out the other side with a clearer sense of purpose, not only about your work but about your whole life.
A thoughtfully designed journey through the unbearable lightness of leadership.
The Marketing Academy is not only career-defining, it’s life-changing. I have learned more than I could have possibly imagined from the inspirational speakers, mentors, my coach and of course the other brilliant scholars. I think everyone takes something different out of the program depending on their own vision and purpose and development areas, but for me the coaching on taking control of your own outcomes, becoming a key person of influence, and “daring to begin before you are ready” has had the most impact.
These are 3 big benefits I’m taking away from the Marketing Academy. It’s:
1. Ignited my passion to do more: to be the best leader I can be in all aspects of my life, and encourage others to do the same
2. Elevated my perceptiveness: so I’m now less afraid to try new approaches to situations and challenges
3. And best of all, provided me with a whole new support network through my fellow scholars: whose energy is totally infectious, and with whom I’ve created a special bond, like that of a family
If you’re curious and motivated to charge yourself up and grow into the best person you can be, then you will absolutely love the journey the scholarship takes you on. It’s provided a different way of thinking that will stay with me, always.
A truly remarkable, once in a lifetime, opportunity to learn from the very best marketers and leaders in the UK. Each part of the Marketing Academy jigsaw influences and compliments the other so well – from the coaching and mentoring, to faculties and giving back through charitable support – every up and coming marketer worth their salt should be considering applying.
IÕm incredibly proud to be involved with the Scholarship Program. It brings talented individuals together in a powerful blend of training, mentoring and coaching which is completely free of charge. The benefits to mentors and mentees alike are mutually rewarding. The program has status, momentum and real influence now.
For me the Academy has all been about sharing. I still can’t believe the insights and stories that have been shared by industry leaders, faculty partners and the brilliant minds of scholars. This community of sharing has opened up a completely different future for me.
