Content Marketing

Content marketing is among the fastest-growing areas in marketing and communications. In the Content Marketing specialization, you learn how to create strategies and content that work across multiple platforms to achieve brand objectives. You create written, digital, video and audio content -- then implement a strategy to roll out that content to consumers.

"Given that customers are now co-creating brands with us, we must create brand content that they can get involved with and interact with. The IMC program helps prepare students to create, evaluate and champion ideas that do just that."Bob Scarpelli
