About the IDM Student Competition
This well-established competition provides great experience for students to work on a challenging and real-life assignment. The brief invites solutions that cover all aspects of direct, data and digital marketing and there’s a real chance that if the client likes what is presented to them, they’ll use it in a live campaign. It is also used by lecturers as a valuable teaching aid on marketing and business courses.
