Digital Marketing Foundations for Executives
For businesses today, it’s critical to understand the digital landscape and precisely how customers perceive and interact with their brands. In an age where a simple tweet can start a wave of great or bad publicity, it’s important for companies to understand and control their digital exposure to proactively design and develop holistic digital strategies.

Students will explore key foundational concepts in social and digital media and expand on them to create dynamic social and digital media marketing strategies while optimizing for efficiency and effectiveness.
