26 Sep
12 Week Program


Marketing in the digital era has transformed the way companies must think about how they build their brand and communicate with consumers. Effective – and genuine – brand storytelling has become essential for connecting and establishing a relationship with audiences. To do so, brands must have a clear understanding of their value in the market.

Simultaneously, the opportunities and tools available have not only vastly expanded across traditional and modern channels; they are integrated and interdependent. In similar fashion, the roles and responsibilities of those who drive these initiatives have moved beyond the strict purview of the marketing team. From IT professionals to sales teams, participation in marketing activities is often varied and frequent across organizational lines.

Marketing leaders who want to ensure success understand their decisions cannot be made with a siloed team; companywide cooperation and coordination are vital. Our Mini-MBA: Integrated Marketing Communications will help you approach marketing from a holistic, cross-functional perspective, while sparking ideas to effectively share your brand story.
