Globally, you might have hundreds of institutes offering an MBA in digital marketing but very selected universities offer a PG in Digital Marketing.
As a student who is interested in making a career in digital marketing, would you want to enroll for an MBA that offers merely 1 or 2 modules of digital marketing or enroll for a PG course where you will learn the ins and outs of digital marketing?
Of Course, you would opt for a PG course, but when universities that offer this program are scarce, it becomes very difficult for you to locate the right university that matches your requirements.
You are in luck because I can save you from this disappointment with the help of IIDE’s Post Graduation in Digital Marketing Program.
This program by IIDE includes all the benefits of a 2-year MBA in just an 11-month PG.
And there’s much more to it that we are going to discuss below. All in all, this blog will help you decide whether IIDE’s PG in Digital Marketing Program is worth your time and investment.
Top 9 Reasons why IIDE’s PG in Digital Marketing Program is totally worth it!
1. Advanced Curriculum
Students always want the curriculum of their postgraduate courses to be more advanced than their degree. And since digital marketing is taught very briefly during college, the curriculum of a postgraduate course in digital marketing should include foundational to advanced concepts of digital marketing.
Keeping this in mind, the curriculum of IIDE’s Post Graduation Program flows from foundational to advanced marketing modules throughout 11 months.
Your first few weeks will include an introduction to digital marketing, traditional marketing vs digital marketing, the scope of digital marketing, etc so that you get the basics right.
Then you are introduced to more advanced concepts like affiliate marketing, video marketing, influencer marketing, customer relationship management, media planning & buying, e-commerce management, etc.
This way you are not overloaded with information at once and be excited to be in class for each lecture.
The curriculum also includes training in 20+ digital marketing and AI tools throughout the 11 months:
2. The IIDE Culture & Vibe
IIDE believes in a work-fun balance.
To keep our students from an information overload, we ensure that they have fun from time to time.
PG students celebrate festivals together, go on fun treks, play loads of games, movie nights, cricket matches, dance parties & whatnot!

Having fun while learning actually elevates the learning experience that will help you to understand the concept in an even better manner. And the center of all this fun and learning are our campuses, both in Mumbai and Delhi – full of vibrant and positive energy. You can visit both campuses to get a better idea.
3. 100% Placements Assistance & Career Support
Being a graduate, apart from curriculum, students also look for strong placement support for institutes. You would naturally want the security of being placed by the end of the course.
But IIDE’s placement assistance is much more than that.
A 100% placement guarantee is offered to PG students & here are some of the brands where some of our students have been placed:
Additionally, students also need training to become corporate ready and more employable to match the expectations of such big brands.
Hence, IIDE’s placement team offers end-to-end career support such as personal career guidance, mock interviews, resume building workshops, soft skills training and much more.
IIDE is one of the very few institutes that offers distinct digital marketing specialisations in the 11-month PG Program. The two specialisations are:
- Creative Strategy
- Performance Marketing
Usually, a student has to choose between various specialisations but with IIDE, you can choose either of the one as your MAJOR and the other one as your MINOR.
This format of Major and Minor helps our PG students get introduced to both topics but also master the one that you want to specialise in.
For example, if you are a more creative person, you can still understand what Performance Marketing is by choosing it as your Minor and master Creative Strategy by choosing it as your Major.
This way, your knowledge in digital marketing will never be limited to a certain niche.
5. Learning from Industry Experts
Professors are your first sources in any industry. If you want to learn about digital marketing, you naturally would want to learn it from someone who has worked in the industry and knows all the ins and outs.
All of IIDE’s PG Program’s trainers are industry experts and have worked with big brands.
Here are a few of the trainers:
The trainers bring in years of experience, learnings & insights from the industry before entering the class.
6. Live Projects with Google and Capstone Projects
The PG Program includes various live projects after each module so that you test everything you learned in class.
One of the highlights is the Live Project with Google where the teams get $330 from Google to advertise for NGOs.
Students also get INR 1500 to spend on Instagram and Facebook Ads when they’re learning about Social Media Marketing.
Such live projects really test the students’ practical ability in digital marketing.
And to top it off, there is the final Capstone Project where students team up and work on a brand’s strategy. The Capstone Project will test your digital marketing skills as well as soft skills such as presentation, communication, teamwork, etc.
To judge these Capstone projects, decision-makers of top agencies like Schbang, FCB Kinnect, White Rivers Media, etc are invited.
So a student is presenting in front of a potential recruiter who gives constructive feedback to him/her.
7. Student Leadership Roles
While IIDE trainers put the fun in learning, our student leaders put the learning in fun.
Students from each batch are selected, after various processes of screening, as the cultural Secretaries, Media Secretaries, Student Representatives, etc.
These roles really shape the leaders when they interact and manage students of different backgrounds, cultures & personalities – all under one roof.
Taking a student leadership role can really beneficial for you as a student as these roles will shape and equip you with the skills such as coordinating all the activities with respect to organizing cultural events online or offline campus, undertaking outward communication, coordinating all the placement and internship related activities and much more.
By the end of this, you will be ready to take on any challenge that comes your way.
8. Agency Visits, Super Sessions & 2-month Internship
To offer corporate exposure, students of IIDE’s PG Program are taken on agency visits.
Each batch visits a top marketing agency to understand what is the framework of an agency and what is the synergy between the teams.
On one hand, students step out of class for Agency Visits & on the other hand, IIDE invites top marketing gurus to their classes for Super Sessions.
Weekly Super Sessions help the students in understanding a brand from the marketer’s mouth and also network with them.
