What is NIMA?

In cooperation with the Netherlands Marketing Institute (NIMA) (www.nima.nl) and the Netherlands Education and Training Center (ETCN) (www.etcn.nl), the Armenian Marketing Association has become the official and exclusive partner of ETCN (http: // www.etcn.nl/partners) since 2007 and received the right to conduct training programs accredited by NIMA and the European Marketing Confederation (www.emc.be).
These training courses are interactive sessions where the knowledge and experience of the participants are taken into account in addition to the training program. One of the important features is that, in addition to theoretical knowledge, the training participants also receive practical skills in implementing the company’s marketing activities. These skills make it possible to increase the organization’s competitiveness, increase the company’s profitability, and maintain consumer loyalty to the company and its products.
