South East Technological University’s (SETU) Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Digital Marketing with Analytics and Master of Science in Digital Marketing and Analytics have been accredited by the Institute of Analytics (IoA), the international professional body for analytics and data science professionals. This accreditation is global recognition of the calibre of the university’s digital marketing with analytics programmes that meet the highest academic, professional, and ethical standards set by the institute.
The digital era has changed the marketing landscape dramatically, transforming how businesses and organisations communicate with consumers.

Key to this is robust training in data analytics, which is at the heart of all successful marketing. The accreditation from the Institute of Analytics gives students and employers increased confidence in the quality of education that SETU provides, which will help students gain a competitive edge in the data age.
Both the BSc (Honours) in Digital Marketing with Analytics and the Master of Science in Digital Marketing and Analytics bring together the latest academic research with industry knowledge to deliver courses that prepare learners to carve out an effective career in the digital marketing sector. Additionally, via accreditation from the IoA, learners will have an internationally established professional network linking them with other industry professionals and empowering them to be on the cutting edge of sectoral trends and best practice as their careers progress.
Speaking about the accreditation, Dr Eileen Doyle, Head of Faculty of Business and Humanities at SETU in Carlow, commented, “We are thrilled to receive this accreditation from the Institute of Analytics in recognition of the commitment and dedication of the lecturing team in developing and delivering such high quality programmes.
