Digital Marketing Specialization

The internet and advances in digitization and social networking are transforming how companies and governments interact with customers and partners. Virtually every company in every industry is committed to establishing a “digital presence” that enables it to interact with customers and suppliers in new ways.  As a result, today’s marketing managers need a deep understanding of how digital tools can be used to develop insights about customers and competitors and make key decisions about price, communications, channels, and products.  These tools include the latest developments in areas such as social media, crowdsourcing, data analytics, mobile, and e-commerce.  This specialization provides students with the strategic and analytical skills to obtain positions in organizations that are using these digital marketing tools and resources to add value to those organizations.  The organizations include the “suppliers” of these new digital tools (e.g., Google, Facebook), consulting firms and advertising agencies, and traditional companies that are routinely using these tools and resources to aid in making everyday decisions.
