Digital Brand Strategies is an overview of digital communication and interactive experiences for brands. You’ll learn how to gather existing information and perceptions about a brand and explore what opportunities exist for telling a brand's story in technology-rich environments through websites, social media, email, internet searches and mobile devices.

Consequently, content in the course relies on real-world case study assignments that involve creative thinking, problem solving and interaction with your fellow students and instructors. In the spirit of 21st-century business practice, we're offering each course online and drawing on webinars, Google Hangouts and our media-rich e-learning platform to keep you engaged and allow flexible scheduling options for working professionals.
