Become a leading-edge master marketer

It’s never been easier to reach the right audience with your marketing message. Innovations in digital marketing tactics and tools have made it possible to serve your content to just about any target audience you can dream of, in real time with real results. However, this rapid growth in technology has caused a skills gap in the digital marketing job field. Many marketing professionals from different backgrounds struggle to keep current with their knowledge and technical expertise. The result is that, even though almost half of all marketing jobs require digital skills, employers are having trouble finding qualified digital marketing professionals to join their teams.

Digital marketing jobs have recently grown 164%
Digital marketing jobs pay $7,000 more on average (compared to less specialized digital marketing jobs)
