The Scholarship: delivered in the UK, Australia and USA, we award 30 Scholarships to the best emerging leaders in Marketing, Advertising, Media and Communications who benefit from a packed 9 month curriculum including mentoring, bespoke learning events, personal coaching, leadership development and more.

The Fellowship: a global, C Suite level program delivered in partnership with McKinsey & Company is exclusively for CMOs and Marketing Directors. This board level mentoring and knowledge platform ensures that marketing leaders build the right capabilities to take on CEO or Board roles.

The Apprenticeship: delivered by our charity The Marketing Academy Foundation in the UK it’s a 12 month fully paid Marketing Apprenticeship for young people from diverse and challenging background who may normally be overlooked for this kind of work experience. The Apprenticeship provides on-the-job learning, training and qualifications and the 1st step to a career within Marketing & Advertising.

The Alumni Programs: Since The Marketing Academy launched the Scholarship, over 500 Scholars have graduated and 100’s of CMOs have completed to Fellowship. All have utilised the skills and knowledge they’ve learnt to move into increasingly senior roles, take on bigger projects or have taken the leap to start their own businesses.

Our Alumni programs ensure that all former Scholars and Fellows can continue to make the most of The Marketing Academy by accessing our inspirational learning and speakers as well as continuing to benefit from one of the strongest networks they have available to them, each other.
