The Online Marketing Institute has been involved in online education for digital marketing longer than nearly all other organizations in the space. To address the topic of accreditation, since there is no accrediting body, OMI has gained accreditation from the States of California and Colorado and has been endorsed (and used by) major non-profit associations within the industry including: The Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB), Direct Marketing Association (DMA), Email Experience Council (EEC), Local Business Marketing Association(s), Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) and more. OMI’s certification programs were then built through Wharton and it's Interactive Media Initiative to build an academically verified method to teach, train and test.
