The Marketing Academy AUS has opened nominations for the 2021 intake of its scholarship program.

The program gives high-potential leadership talent from within marketing, media and advertising the insight, skills and knowledge to become "lead the businesses of tomorrow", and is highly regarded among the industry.

The Scholarship Program, which enables scholars to access an enviable line up of C suite mentors and executive coaches in addition for a packed development curriculum is free, part time and will run between March and November 2021.

Almost 600 people within marketing, advertising, media and communications competed for just 30 places in Australia last year.

The Marketing Academy operates in the UK, Australia and the USA and is a not for profit supported exclusively by sponsorship from the industry.

This allows selection to the programs to be merit based and free to attend. Facebook, Commonwealth Bank, IAG, KFC Global and Google sponsored this year’s AUS Scholarship

Graduates of all programs are supported by ongoing Alumni Programs which are now supplemented via The Marketing Academy Virtual Campus, a 12 month program of lectures, masterclasses and workshops exclusively for The Marketing Academy community and sponsors. The Australia Alumni program has 180 members and is sponsored by oOh!media and American Express.
