Students will learn to develop an approach for solving problems using the art of programming. They will be introduced to the fundamentals of programming constructs like data types, operators, branching and looping structures, user-defined methods and basic data structures.

Digital marketing has become a significantly visual field and with online advertising, social media, and branding all have roots in imagery, there is no denying the importance of knowing the basics of design or image resolution to be successful as a digital marketer.

A content management system (CMS) is a web function that makes content authoring or content delivery easy, so that even a non-technical person can efficiently build a website, integrate web publishing procedures and immediately deploy them, creating a content-rich website. Students will learn the WordPress platform and its various tools as well as the basics of databases. Using a CMS like Wordpress will allow you to redesign websites with little or no overhead.

Students are introduced to essential concepts and learn how digital marketing differs from traditional marketing. Learn about customer relationship management, developing a marketing plan, creating strategies/campaigns, content marketing, work functions and online reputation management.

Students will explore the concepts involved in outbound marketing such as search engine optimization (SEO), a set of techniques used to optimize the positioning of a site, web page or application among the results provided by search engines such as Google, as well as pay-per-click (PPC), retargeting, email marketing and customer experience.

Students will put their knowledge into practice by creating a marketing strategy for social media through exploring different platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+.

Web analytics is the measurement, collection, analysis, and reporting of Internet data for purposes of understanding and optimizing web usage. This last module of the program will be about tracking performance monitoring using Google Analytics. Students are taught how to create AdWords and manage them according to their performance.

At the end of the program, students complete a real-time, industrially-simulated web development project using digital marketing.
