London, England (PRWEB UK) 14 January 2015 -- London School of Marketing, a leading institution offering accredited marketing and business qualifications in the heart of London, has released an article revealing the top five benefits of a studying for a professional designation as compared to an academic degree.
"While academic courses are long and require heavy commitment, professional courses help to refresh and update knowledge within a short period of time," the article states.

Complementing a comprehensive range of blogs, whitepapers and case studies designed to support students pursuing sought-after marketing, business and academic designations, the benefits the article lists include networking, demonstrating commitment to potential employers and gaining specific job related skills.
"Unless you’re considering a future in academia, theoretical knowledge alone will not be sufficient," the article concludes.
