Subject Title
Digital Marketing II

Subject Description
In Digital Marketing II, we are going to take students' previous digital marketing learning and put it together, using real world case studies, examples and assignments to forge a lifelong understanding of digital marketing concepts and best practices.  By the end of the class, students will be able to identify and evaluate various digital marketing opportunities, create execution plans and ROI models to evaluate the efficacy and optimize for future campaigns.

In addition to reading David Meerman Scott's classic book The New Rules of Marketing and PR, we will also have guest lecturers throughout the term to understand our learnings through real world applications.  Students will also be encouraged to follow some of the top digital marketing and PR blogs - a fantastic source of current and real world thought leadership.
