For businesses in the digital economy, the opportunities to connect with new audiences are vast – but they’re also in a constant state of flux. As a result, every business needs someone they can rely on to build and lead digital strategies that turn leads into customers, and customers into advocates.

As more and more human interaction takes place across digital channels, the competition for prolonged attention and meaningful connection is more intense than ever. There’s also a treasure trove of data about consumer behaviour waiting to be collected, interpreted and applied to drive business growth.

It might be no surprise then, if the demand for leaders in digital marketing continues its rise in the coming years.

The ability to perform in a marketing leadership role requires that you’re able to unlock the power of data to drive growth, deliver greater ROI on a marketing budget, and attract diverse, new talent to your team.

The LSE Digital Marketing Strategy & Analytics Career Accelerator seeks to address the need for digital marketing leaders by helping you develop integrated, up-to-date knowledge of the tools and tactics you can use to boost business performance, with a focus on transforming data into actionable insights and using visualisation to communicate these insights at a leadership level.

Through engaging coursework and industry-led projects, you’ll deepen your understanding of digital marketing and practice its application in real scenarios. From channel strategy, team structures and data privacy, to growth marketing, emerging technologies and data-backed decision-making, you’ll build a diverse portfolio of digital marketing skills you can use to drive ROI for any business.


At their core, Career Accelerators seek to address four knowledge and skill groups that lay the foundations for sustainable career success.

  • Technical knowledge and skills in high-demand technologies
  • The human skills required to attain jobs, promotions and employer-specific outcomes
  • Broad business understanding that drives effective application of technical skills
  • Reflective capabilities that support personal growth and development for meaningful careers.
