CREA, a member of the Digital Switzerland network, has announced the creation of the Communication & Digital Strategist programme, which offers a double qualification: CREA expertise in digital fields and disciplines as well as preparation for the Federal Diploma (Brevet Fédéral – BF) in Communication.
Under the management of Gérald Le Meur, Branch Office Director of OOH Media SA, Performance Director of McSaatchi and long-standing lecturer at CREA, the Communication & Digital Strategist qualification aims to provide an important stage in professional training while preparing candidates for the needs and expectations of businesses, in a sector that is currently undergoing transformation.

This initial offering includes a one-time mentorship from Jean Noël Kapferer, teacher, author and speaker. Students will have the opportunity to work directly with him, towards their diploma.
By combining the Brevet Fédéral of Communication Specialist with the best content from CREA’s programme curricula, the Communication & Digital Strategist + BF qualification allows you to gain training in all aspects of multichannel communication, with a 360° vision, in order to enhance your online and offline skills.
This dual programme to obtain the Brevet Fédéral allows you to master communication basics and gives you the necessary knowledge to create and optimise strategies for digital communication.
The course includes 400 hours of lessons and is designed in order to fit around a full timetable. The lessons take place Monday and Wednesday evenings (6–9.30pm) and two Saturdays per month, from January 2020 to February 2021. The lecturers, all experts and professionals in their own fields, will support the students, combining theory and practical experience, which is always relevant to the professional world.
Each course participant will receive 6 months free access to the online learning platform LEARNING7 and the course: “Marketing in a Digital World”. As well as allowing you to revise the ideas presented in the course, these online lessons are tailored to your pace and result in additional certification. This e-Learning programme, designed to boost your skills in Digital Marketing, has been developed with Facebook, Google, Instagram and YouTube.
Since January 1st 2018, anyone signed up for and taking a Federal examination, is eligible for a grant equal to 50% of the course fees (for a preparatory course) from the Swiss Confederation. More information here.

Each application is individually evaluated by the course director, who reserves the right to accept or refuse a candidate without having to provide justification.
Price of 15-month course: CHF 9800.- and admission fee (CHF 200.-)
Not included in this fee: exam tax for the Brevet Fédéral, which comes to CHF 1,950.-.
CREA is available to discuss the financing of your course. It is possible to implement a bespoke payment plan.
