Marketing Institute Ireland is once again proud to be sponsors of ESA Diploma in Sponsorship & Sports Marketing in 2023. The ESA Diploma covers a broad range of themes meaning it is suitable for candidates across a wide range of industries and is just as appropriate for middle/senior management who wish to test and expand their existing knowledge as it is for those aspiring to gain entry to the sponsorship industry. This diploma is the only formal form of qualification in sponsorship.
The Class of ’23 will be able to take advantage of updated learning materials and demonstrate their knowledge via a series of stimulating learning exercises (updated to be more approachable and refined) and a long-term project involving a real-life sponsorship challenge. There will be a series of digital class seminars presented by a wide-range of industry luminaries as well as newly-initiated social gatherings to enable valuable networking.

I thoroughly enjoyed the ESA Diploma. The course was challenging but that’s good because it means you’re learning continuously and putting those learnings into action throughout the course. I was lucky enough to be promoted within PWC recently and I have the diploma to thank for that
I couldn’t recommend this course highly enough. It was a challenge but being taught by someone with such an amazing passion about the discipline of sponsorship is amazing. I’m just starting out my career in sponsorship so it was an amazing learning curve and has equipped me with the skills I need to move forward.
