Learn By Doing

Here’s the thing: work in social media is incredibly rewarding—but it’s also hard work. We’re talking about coordinating messaging across a half dozen channels (at least) while organizing content, tracking roles, planning events, coordinating outreach…there’s a lot to do.

So how do you get the experience you need to do all that and excel? By practicing for real.

In our Master’s program, we don’t believe in textbooks or exams. This is about cutting-edge creative projects and one-of-a-kind practical experience. Our social media bootcamp students have worked with huge brands like Starbucks, Ford, and Burger King.
