About The Marketing & Leadership Academy

When in 2014 the previous provider of the CIM & CAM marketing qualifications in Derby took the decision to stop delivering, the teaching team were unanimous in their wish to continue offering the professional marketing qualifications in the city. With the added factor of our passion for teaching leadership, The Marketing & Leadership Academy was established to deliver professional business qualifications to students in the East Midlands & neighboring counties, Northamptonshire, South Yorkshire & Staffordshire.

Our vision is to be the leading supplier of professional marketing & leadership qualifications & practice in the East Midlands, embracing excellence, continuous professional development, an evolving learning experience & a collaborative spirit to achieve our vision.
