The Social Strategy Curriculum at M.AD

What (and how) you’ll be learning.

Learn by doing. In 10 short (but intense) weeks you’ll learn to develop social media strategies and campaigns. You’ll have the skills you need to show your future employer you can build brands using social media.

Each week your mentor will be a different social media expert. Instructors include professionals from Facebook, Google and top agencies like Sapient and R/GA. In each session they’ll cover a different aspect of social media. You’ll learn the different aspects of social media from content strategies, paid media and texting campaigns, to understanding data and analytics.

The rest of the week is the best part: you partner with a content creation team and based on your social strategy develop a social media campaign including videos, Facebook ads, Tweets and anything else that will create an engaged following for your brand.

It all happens with an innovative curriculum of classes like these.
