About this Certificate
Social media tools have created a two-way conversation between customers and marketers that organizations of all sizes can use to reach their target audiences. In only a few hours per week and little or no financial investment, become an active, collaborative social media contributor, and drive results in line with your business objectives.
By exploring real world situations and current case studies, students will learn the principles of social media, the fundamentals of branding and building online communities, as well as how to execute and measure the success of a social media strategy. In addition, students will have the opportunity to work interactively to create a hands-on social media plan for a local organization.
This program is offered in collaboration with Mount Royal University.
