Partner Spotlight

Find out how we help our partners offer cutting edge digital education to their students

"I'm excited about the fact that the students have another piece of certification which they didn't have to study for separately or pay for separately. Just getting that dual accreditation was tremendously valuable. It means that they have something on their CV that gives them an edge! It's all about getting them the jobs that they want!'"

Kardi Somerfield, Course Leader & Senior Lecturer UON

'We've had some really big success stories with our internship students who have already done the certification and who have applied it to the business they are working for. We've had some businesses writing to us saying these students have helped their businesses dramatically. We had one student in particular that comes to mind, this student didn't do so well the first time around and repeated the course this time with the DMI certification, she excelled getting a great letter of recommendation from her employer. So it's working so well, we have just topped 410 enrollments on our associate level, we are getting more and more students. I love it!'

Dave Keighron, University Canada West.

"The feedback from students has been fantastic, I was really quite ignorant of how much the students would celebrate their certifications...How much they would celebrate on social media, the day the cobranded certification with DMI & ETSU was issued my whole LinkedIn and Facebook feed was taken up with students sharing them!"

Professor Stephen Marshall, ETSU

"Students want to enhance their CV with professional certification.' ...'The DMI certificate is very industry led, its always been updated and its core to everything that is happening in marketing now"

Nora Al-Jindi. Program Leader, Dar Al-Hekma University.

"Having an affiliation with DMI has had a massive impact on our student recruitment. On our student satisfaction. And what we are now seeing is an impact on our student employability. This has been a really fruitful partnership for us!"

Daniel Turner, Assistant Dean, University of West Scotland
