The Humber Advertising – Account Management graduate certificate program will train you to manage the creative process for the benefit of clients at an advertising agency or within a client's marketing department.
Graduates will have the skills to work in either a client or agency team – in for-profit, not-for-profit and/or government marketing teams. The content is primarily directed at advertising agencies’ account manager roles but also adapts well to other communication – or design-based companies. Skills learned can apply to running your own company or working with in-house creative/marketing communications departments in any size organization.
This unique program prepares account managers for the advertising industry by exploring a balance of skills from both the advertising and creative side of the communication process. By incorporating both people skills and critical thinking skills, you will acquire the essential skills required to succeed in the fast-paced creative world of advertising.
Graduates will be an asset in three key areas:
Client Relationships – through a deep understanding of the client, their personal and business needs; and through an ability to marshal the agency’s (particularly creative) resources in an efficient and effective manner
Creativity – through an understanding of the creative product, the consumer and the process to get to the most powerful creative work
Process Management – through the efficient planning and management of the creative process
You will learn about the link between successful creative and client success criteria including return on investment (ROI) and revenue goals. Digital storytelling and new media are integrated throughout the course curriculum. This is a writing intensive program. An in-depth understanding of integrated marketing communications and its relationship to other aspects of the business will help you succeed in the complex communication horizon that exists today.Courses Program Standards

Working with established businesses will not only prepare students for the fast-paced excitement of the industry, but will also help develop portfolio work and reference points for interviews.
