Digital marketing training group Econsultancy has joined forces with leading international business school Hult to develop a new Master in Digital Marketing programme, starting in September 2010.

Econsultancy will draw from their extensive experience in training marketers for the world’s finest companies (including Google, Dell, Time Warner and Microsoft) to develop a syllabus that delivers practical digital skills and insight with a strong commercial focus, and prepares students for continued learning after graduation.

A spokesperson for Hult commented: “Econsultancy's reputation as the global source of independent information and training for digital marketing practitioners, along with their experience of running academic programmes, made them the ideal partner”

Craig Hanna, Training Director at Econsultancy said “The launch of this new qualification is an exciting opportunity for Econsultancy to continue to contribute to the digital education of a global audience. The partnership with Hult underpins our commitment to expanding our services internationally, and has provided a platform for us to deliver a world-class qualification for the digital leaders of tomorrow.”
