However you could feel that going through a proper digital marketing course or training program is better for you, you are right. A good training program will give you structure, mentor-ship and the opportunity to network with like-minded people.

Digital marketing training programs in India

So if you want to attend a training program on digital marketing, you are welcome to do so. But make sure that you also follow the steps in this article so that you can get hands on experience in this field.

When it comes to digital marketing training, some companies are exclusive in it. Other educational institutes, in order to sustain and offer more and more online courses, have created numerous training programs in the area of digital marketing.

Apart from offering a general digital marketing training program, some companies offer specialization in Search Engine Marketing, Mobile Marketing, PPC and so on. Additionally, the majority of the courses and programs listed here have authorized certifications that could build up your resume.

Here is a list of some of the best-known websites and companies that currently offer digital marketing courses in India.

1. Digital Vidya

Digital Vidya is a company built exclusively for digital marketing training. It was founded in 2009 by Pradeep Chopra and Kapil Nakra.


Digital Vidya have done more than 250 training programs with more than 6,000 participants so far. They have partnered with many leading companies such as eBay, GM, Reliance and Citibank to offer digital marketing training.

When it comes to digital marketing training in India, Digital Vidya is the market leader. They are also the official training partners for Google India.

They have 8 certification courses available as of now. If you are just getting started, CDMM – Certified Digital Marketing Master Course should be your preference. CDMM is their flagship course. The cost of this program is Rs.49,900 + Service tax.


Apart from the top level CDMM Course, other short courses include:

  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

There are 3 online exams by Google and out of which you have to pass 2 exams to get the GCP certificate. Once you pass the exams, the certificate would be issued online. You can also get the Google Adwords certification directly without attending any training programs.

Update: DigitalVidya has acquired Digital Academy India

3. NIIT Digital Marketing

NIIT is a very well known training institute in India. NIIT was one of the first institutes to launch a comprehensive digital marketing training program in India in 2012.

niit digital marketing training

They have partnered with the Digital Marketing Institute from Ireland for the content and course materials. You will be getting the certification from Digital Marketing Institute.

Their training is not offered online. You have to be physically present at one of their training centres.There are more than one hundred NIIT learning centres in over 30 cities in India. But, the lead instructor will not be physically present.

The training will happen via a live video stream. The training will happen in a simultaneous manner in many NIIT centres across India. They claim that they have trained 40,000 professionals so far. They offer the following four courses:

  • Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing
  • Professional Diploma in Mobile Marketing
  • Professional Diploma in Social Media Marketing
  • Professional Diploma in Search Marketing

NIIT doesn’t specialise in digital marketing and offers training in a lot of other subjects as well. If you have had a good experience learning at NIIT before, you may prefer NIIT.

No option for online learning, non-transparent pricing and not being an exclusive digital marketing training company are some of the drawbacks of NIIT Digital Marketing program.

4. Manipal Global Education Services

Manipal is a well known brand in India. They run hospitals, training institutes, resorts and club houses. As a part of Manipal Global education services they offer digital marketing training.

manipal digital marketing

Manipal offers digital marketing training in a classroom setup with a physically present instructor. Their fees are also reasonable at Rs.25,000 plus service tax. The course spans three months.

According to them, their training is best suited for: Students, Individuals / beginners seeking career opportunities in the marketing domain, Marketing professionals, Web marketers and Entrepreneurs. You can find more about their digital marketing program here.

They also offer another online digital marketing certification program for Rs.11,125. This is suitable for those who do not want to travel and learn in a classroom setup. In this program they claim that you can master the fundamentals of SEO, SEM, Web Analytics, Social Media and Online PR.

5. is another education and training company based in Bangalore, India. They also have an office in Houston, Texas. As of now they have more than 100 certification courses. Simplilearn provides online and offline training based on the needs of the students.

simpilearn was founded in 2009 by Krishna Kumar. Initially, it was just a blog with useful tips which later evolved into a training company. The digital marketing training program is named as Advanced Online Marketing Certification Training.

The program costs Rs.49,999 plus taxes and it contains 7 courses. There are 175+ hours of e-learning content available in their course as claimed by them. The course is set to complete in 180 days. The educational materials and the certification will be provided by

SimpliLearn will also assist you in getting the OMCP certification. OMCP is awarded to professionals who have completed extensive training and possess several years of online marketing experience.


AIMA, the All India Management Association, has launched a digital marketing training program of their own. They have partnered with Digital Vidya for the content and course materials.


AIMA’s digital marketing course consists of the following modules:

  • Orientation to Digital Marketing
  • Search engine Optimization(SEO)
  • Search Engine Marketing(SEM)/Google
  • Analytics and Display ads
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Email Marketing
  • Web Analytics

Their program is served as an Online Weekend Programme. The training will happen for 4 hours on Saturday and Sunday. The cost of the training program is Rs.36,000 plus taxes. The course is set to complete in 3 months.

7. EduPristine

Edupristine is another well known training firm in India which offers courses in different disciplines such as Big Data, Hadoop, Business analytics, Finance and Accounting.


They have recently launched a digital marketing course. They have options for both online and offline training sessions. Their training centres are located in 12 cities in India which includes the metros and major cities like Bangalore.

Their digital marketing training emphasises on SEO, email marketing, social Media marketing, pay per click advertising, Google Adwords and mobile marketing.

The cost of their digital marketing program is Rs.33,000 and they cover the following curriculum in their 12 day course:

  • Introduction To Digital Marketing
  • Google Analytics
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Search Engine Marketing(SEM) Framework
  • Strategy of Social Media Marketing
  • Framework of Email Marketing & Going mobile
  • Lead Management
  • Live Project

For more details about the digital marketing course you can visit this link. Classroom trainings have obvious advantages over online training sessions. If you think you would learn better in a live classroom with co-learners sitting next to you, EduPristine is a good choice.


You can see that out of the seven programs listed here, at least three programs have content from Digital Vidya.

So far in my research, Digital Vidya has the most comprehensive and quality training content when it comes to digital marketing. So if you don’t want to compromise on quality, go ahead with Digital Vidya’s training. But at Rs.56,000 including taxes, it is not a cheap training program.

button (1)

If you are looking for a budget training program, Manipal’s course is not bad. Their cost is around Rs.28,000 including taxes, but you will not have an online training facility.

If you are not satisfied with any of the above digital marketing training programs, then you can become a self made digital marketing expert like me. You can attend the Google AdWords Certification exam yourself and get a certificate at zero cost. All the Best!

Any questions?

Thanks Deepak, the information posted by you on Digital Marketing courses is very useful.


vinoth August 3, 2016 at 8:29 pm

Hi Guys,
See the link below every link, if one clicks it, that company might pay him money. Maybe Digitalvidya is paying him more money and that’s why it is topped in his list. I strongly recommend to cross check in every possibly ways before making decisions.
Self taught is the best way to learn things. COURSERA brings you free course, but payable if you need certificate. Google has free certifications. Do check it out and decide wisely. All the best !!


Manideep Bagam October 14, 2016 at 6:27 pm

It would be of great help if you could suggest the best institute which provides Digital Marketing certification course in India with placement assistance.

Will look forward to your response.

Please guide me on this as I am very confuse in terms of what course I should join what not.


Srinivas April 3, 2016 at 3:42 pm

Hi, You are right. Digital Marketing Programs and Digital Marketing Institutions are different. Digital Marketing Institutions will help you to learn Digital Marketing Programs. Anyway, come to the main point, main Digital Marketing Programs are:
1. Content Marketing,
2. Search Engine Optimization (SEO),
3. Social Media Marketing (SMM),
4. Email Marketing,
5. Mobile Marketing,
6. Google Web Master Tools and Analytics,

And would like to go along the career of analytics . Please advice . Thanks !


Deepak Kanakaraju May 31, 2015 at 7:49 pm

I would recommend that you focus on learning all aspects of digital marketing and become a super expert in one sub category, say analytics. Digital marketing professionals are in great demand but I am not sure about the sub category of digital marketing which will have high demand in the future. That’s something you have to decide.

Getting a job at Google depends on your skill sets and your work. Doing a course may not help you with it. And since I don’t work at Google, I cannot advice you how to get a job there.

Hi Deepak,

Also Digital vidya offers certificate from Vskills as well. So, which will be better if placements are taken into consideration?

Prince November 3, 2015 at 11:53 pm

Hi Deepak,
Thanks for replying, ,which institute is good I’m little confused …like digital Vista is online education only …I checked with other institutions like edupristine ..they are giving offline class and online class both .so please let me know which one is good.

Digital vidya is so costly …U already told about manipal but they are not giving online classes. Only offline classes .so how I will get practical training.

Last question…after compplition of course what salary I will get in market…they will take me as a fressher or they consider my sales and marketing experiance.

What is average salary in market.



Deepak Kanakaraju November 4, 2015 at 11:27 pm

Even after the course, you will be a fresher. And if you feel digital vidya is costly, you should learn by yourself. If you want certifications and live instructor led training program online, I feel digital vidya is worth it.


Prince November 4, 2015 at 11:49 pm

Hi Deepak,

Thanks for replying, what about my sales and marketing experiance.

Then I will start from beginning.

Then what about salary?



Deepak Kanakaraju November 5, 2015 at 7:53 am

Everything is controlled by demand and supply. With a set of skills we can never predict what will be the salary that you can get. It depends on your aptitude and how well you can market yourself to your potential employer.


Shaik Abdullah November 22, 2015 at 10:56 pm

Hi Deepak,
I am a 40 yr old from delhi-ncr and looking for late career change into digital marketing as I believe there is good scope in present and future.I work for a bpo as a billing analyst.

W3TS Digital Marketing December 3, 2015 at 11:12 am

Hiii Deepak,
I am Jitender from W3TS Digital Marketing and first of all thanks for collecting this great list ,of institutes it will help lots of fresher to choose their career with right one. I have noticed you ever talk about learn it yourself for best practices. But its time consuming and freshers miss a lot of thing, there si lot’s of data available on internet but they always miss something and I through its good idea to first start your career by taking professionals help and then go online for improve your skills regularly.


Prince December 3, 2015 at 7:09 pm

Hi Deepak

Please tell me about edupristine institute …that institute is good ..shall I join this in Bangalore.

Abhishek Mallik December 17, 2015 at 7:03 pm


With due respect, you are advocating Digital Vidya and they are promoting themselves on your page.

Creates some doubts. But, thanks for your articles 🙂


Deepak Kanakaraju December 17, 2015 at 8:47 pm

Yes, DigitalVidya is an advertiser on my site, but this article was written long back and I would recommend DV irrespective of my financial relationship with them. 🙂


Abhishek Mallik December 18, 2015 at 2:37 pm

Your reply was honest and quick.

If you could clarify just 2 concerns, it would be of great help.
Do recruiters give more weight-age to
1) Regular classroom vs Online
2) Established brands like NIIT/ Manipal compared to DV or Simplilearn

Thanks in advance 🙂


Deepak Kanakaraju December 19, 2015 at 11:37 pm

Recruiters look at what you have done in digital marketing. Not what you have learned.
DV is more established in this space than NIIT/Manipal.


Abhishek Mallik December 22, 2015 at 8:40 pm

Definitely Digital Marketing is the future and more so that it has just begun to give hope to people looking for growth in career. I started to believe that Digital Marketing can give that extra push an individual needs to achieve his/her goal.
For Entrepreneurs or startups Digital Marketing is best platform and a great launch pad to reach out to World.
You exist when you are Digitally Ready.
I guess you could add Digital Ready in your list of institutes as they too provide best in class Digital marketing training.

Hi Deepak,

I am a Specialist Technical Writer with around 10 years of experience producing customer documentation for multiple client and web-based applications. In order to enrich my knowledge/ skill-set and ensure an alternative career path, I am thinking to learn digital marketing.
Can you pleas advise me whether it is a good option to move to digital marketing by self-studying Google digital marketing study guides and then clear Google certification? Will it benefit if I do not pursue any course from an institute and get this certification rather?

Also, will my documentation expertise give any benefit if I plan to shift my career in digital marketing?

Kindly provide your feedback.

Aarif Choudhury May 27, 2016 at 11:45 pm

I am from Assam and was always interested in digital marketing field. And finally I could rech to this institute Assam School of Internet Marketing ( ) and after a training of about 45 days I am really happy with the progress I made. The duration is also flexible as one’s need so that no one lags behind. In a remote state like Assam choosing digital career is challenging but with the proper guidance of top class institute like Assam School of Internet Marketing it is always achievable. They are very helpful when it comes to placement. And the best part is the fees charged is very nominal. I would strongly suggest interested people in north eastern part of India should join this institute.


Digital marketing Course June 2, 2016 at 12:27 pm

Hi Deepak, The list you have shared is really good as there are most of the institutes covered under it. But, you haven’t mentioned an important name i.e. of ‘Delhi School of Internet Marketing’, popularly called as DSIM. The institute is a specific name as it offers training in digital marketing only and teaches maximum modules of it. Training is given through both in-class and online sessions. I have heard a lot about the institute and so, mentioned it here.
