in-depth Case Studies

McCann Manchester

McCann Manchester is one of the most successful global advertising agencies. A dramatic increase in digital competitor agencies prompted them to seek to differentiate themselves. To stand out from the crowd, improve understanding across the organisation and improve professional development and employee retention, McCann needed to embark on a world-class professional development programme.

We helped McCann to develop a unit in Strategic Planning for Digital Marketing Communications and followed this with an accredited Postgraduate Certificate in Integrated Marketing Communications. Students benefit from up-to-date professional development in-house and rigorous academic study with the Business School. This level of study distinguishes McCann’s employees from others in a saturated graduate workforce whilst instilling a level of understanding about the total operation of the firm.

“Over the years the Business School at Manchester Metropolitan University has provided us with a steady stream of high quality graduates. We worked closely with the Business School to obtain external accreditation for an internal training course that allows employees to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Integrated Marketing Communications. This process gave the Business School a good understanding of McCann Manchester and the opportunities we can offer to their students, and has proved to be mutually beneficial.”
