Why Digital Media?

After working in the corporate world for over a year, I noticed a demand in the marketing field for people with fresh perspectives on the digital strategies needed to take businesses to the next level. In an era when all companies are moving toward an increasingly digital marketing mix, I’ve become fascinated by the ways digital media can transform brands. The interdisciplinary approach of the MDM program gives me an opportunity to combine my experience in marketing with the knowledge of digital media critical for success in today’s business world. My focus in the program will be on integrating traditional marketing strategies with digital media concepts and investigating the tools and technologies available to help brands connect with their audiences, increase engagement and shape customer experiences.
