Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...

Clarity, confidence and a fighting spirit – the headline I would put against the Marketing Academy Scholarship.

You may go in being clear on what you want to achieve but be prepared to unpack everything you thought you knew, be prepared to open your mind and be inspired by both incredible speakers & your fellow Scholars, be prepared to learn skills & techniques to grow your capability as a leader and come out the other side with real clarity on what really gets you out of bed in the morning. YouÕll capture the confidence to carve out the career you want, and release the self-belief to put the right things in place to achieve it.

With the knowledge that you then have 29 other people rooting for you, not to mention the mentors, coach, speakers, alumni and Marketing Academy team you meet along the way, your fighting spirit will come to the fore to make both you and those around you true leaders of change.

Clare Beaumont-Adam, Co Owner, Independents United (IU), 2017 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy Scholarship Program is not only an unrivalled combination of inspiration and education from industry leaders, marketing moguls and professional coaches, itÕs a unique opportunity to stand still and reflect on your personal motivations, aspirations and purpose. YouÕll laugh, youÕll cry and youÕll emerge with the tangible skills, tools and beliefs to progress your professional and personal life.

Philip Raperport, Head of Drama Franchise Marketing, BBC, 2014 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy Scholarship is lifechanging. That isn’t an overstatement, it genuinely is. Be prepared to shatter your perceptions of who you thought you were as a Marketing Leader and build yourself back up as a more empathetic, giving and multi-dimensional human. There’s a reason that so many people apply to the Scholarship. It’s a better education and experience than anything you will ever pay for.

The program has been everything I dreamed of and more. It has been genuinely transformational; it has changed the trajectory of my leadership and believe I will look back on it as a critical step in my journey. It has allowed me to distill down what I need to do over the new few years to grow my impact as a leader.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Marketing Academy offers an unprecedented opportunity to meet face to face with the movers and shakers in the business world and bounce back ideas. The Scholarship is unique in boosting ones understanding and perception of what it means to be a true business leader. I believe that this is the only program which offers a tailored approach to personal development; it shaped my perception, behaviour and attitude.

Masha Voskresenskaia, Associate Director, Coca-Cola European Partners, 2011 Scholar / UK

You only need to look at the names of the mentors and board members involved in the Marketing Academy to see that this is a program like no other in the industry. A genuinely step changing program and a unique program of learning. And critically, because it’s free, it’s open to all- the only thing you need to bring is ability. A program that has a big role to play in the Marketing industry for many years to come.

Bryn Snelson, 2011 Scholar / UK

What a life changing 9 months! You get out what you put in!

2021 UK Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy Fellowship: insightful, inspirational, empowering and connecting, it’s the best professional and personal development I have done in years!

EMEA Fellow Alumni /

I learnt far more on The Marketing Academy than I did at University! The program delivered on every front, from world class mentors, world class content and most important a world class community that’ll stick together long beyond our year together. Huge thanks to everyone involved – you have created something very special 🙂

2020 UK Scholar / UK

TMA Scholarship is an unparallel program, not only because of its curriculum but because you become part of a community that keeps growing and never stops giving!

2020 UK Scholar / UK

Bootcamp had the best assembly of speakers I’ve ever experienced.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

It is a real privilege to have been a Marketing Academy Scholar. It is such a special experience through which I’ve had the chance to meet, learn and be inspired by so many wonderful people.

Emma Brooker, Advertising Producer at Apple, 2013 Scholar / UK

There are 3 things the Marketing Academy can guarantee. The first is that it will literally change your life. Your outlook on what can be achieved will be shifted. Secondly you will be inspired beyond belief. Post boot camps and mentor sessions make you realize the potential we have and the next steps on how to achieve it. Thirdly and most importantly the Scholarship will give you a broader approach to your role and position in your company. You instantly receive a better understanding of your team, career and strengths. You will know how to draw out the best in others and it will help you achieve the life you have always wanted within business. Apply now is my advice.

Nick Rogers, Channel Manager at WME-IMG, 2015 Scholar / UK

10, 15 or 20 years from now, the scholarship at Marketing Academy will be seen as the defining point of my career. The lessons weÕre learning from the best minds in business may not immediately effect our actions today but it will empower us to be better leaders of tomorrow.

Steven Woodgate, Surface Marketing, Microsoft, 2014 Scholar / UK

A thoughtfully designed journey through the unbearable lightness of leadership.

EMEA Fellow Alumni /

Inspirational; informative; and insightful – it’s not often you can say that about a development programme

EMEA Fellow Alumni /

I’ve been on many courses, to many lectures, and read many books, but nothing has had the transformation impact on my leadership potential, style, and performance, that The Marketing Academy has. It is simply the definitive scheme for future marketing and business leaders.

Matt Campbell, Executive Creative Director, MATTA, 2014 Scholar / UK

For anyone serious about demonstrating the strategic leadership and contribution that marketers can make, not just in their organisations but in the industry and society more widely, then unashamedly do everything you can to earn a place in The Marketing Academy. The experience of the bootcamp, mentoring and coaching is truly unique and impossible to put a price on.

Scholar alumni, 2015 / Australia

A must for CMOs with eyes on a general management role.
