The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) has approved the Faculty of Management Technology (FMT) B.Sc. program in Management at the German University in Cairo (GUC) for exemptions on CIM qualifications making it the first university in Egypt to have a CIM Accredited Degree.  

Based on mapping of the marketing content in our bachelor degree, students/graduates finalizing our curriculum are exempt from the L4 Certificate in Professional Marketing modules ‘Applied Marketing and Planning Campaigns’. They will be required to pass one further elective module to obtain the L4 Certificate in Professional Marketing or Certificate in Professional Digital Marketing qualification.

The FMT has developed strong links with CIM and our teaching content has been developed alongside CIM’s learning outcomes to ensure that course content is aligned to industry requirements. 

Students can take advantage of the module exemptions during or up to five years after university if they pass their degree with a 2:2 classification or higher. This allows students to graduate with a CIM qualification alongside their degree. We are proud to offer an Accredited Degree by CIM. Our students will be able to gain industry-recognised qualifications at an accelerated pace.

CIM is the leading professional body for marketers worldwide and exists to develop the marketing profession, maintain professional standards and improve the skills of marketing practitioners. The German University in Cairo has joined forces with CIM to give students the opportunity to gain professional qualifications through the CIM Accredited Degree partnership. CIM qualifications are highly sought after by employers, and their content is reflected in our own degrees which ensures we are equipping students with the best opportunities for a successful marketing career.

CIM strives for business leaders and opinion formers to recognize the positive contribution professional marketing can bring to their organisations, the economy and wider society.

CIM ability to award Chartered Marketer status recognises a marketer’s commitment to staying current and abiding by a professional Code of Conduct.
