I enrolled in the digital strategy and marketing management certification with about four years of experience in a traditional marketing role. My instructors were highly qualified and had a lot of industry experience, many even work in management roles and teach at the same time, so the case studies are recent and detailed. I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to improve their skills in digital marketing and already has some work experience behind them.
