Graduate Certificate in Digital Marketing and Analytics

This certificate provides an introduction to the expanding area of digital marketing and analytics. As this area is inherently multidisciplinary, the certificate draws from coursework within various sub-disciplines offered by the Marketing department (marketing management, digital marketing, and integrated marketing communication) as well as coursework in web analytics and information systems offered by the ISTM and Decision Sciences departments. The objective of the certificate is to provide students with an understanding of the practice of digital marketing, how it relates to marketing communication and marketing strategy, and the role of analytics.
