The fast pace of digital disruption has forced traditional marketing channels to step aside and make room for their online alternatives: smartphones, social media, video and email marketing. The Master in Digital Marketing trains you to manage the demands of the new digital era. You will learn how to launch marketing campaigns by creating and managing digital content, while simultaneously gaining an in-depth understanding of the power of social media, influencer marketing and e-commerce as a way to boost sales of global products and services.
The Master in Digital Marketing will allow you to both look at marketing with a global mindset and gain a digital specialization. The program features a unique combination of the following modules:
This intensive 10-month program features a common Core Period in which you will learn alongside students from other Marketing, Communication & Sales programs. These combined sessions teach you the fundamentals necessary to sharpen your creative, analytical, commercial, business, strategic and digital skills. After the common Core Period, you will then go into your specialization of choice.
During the program, you will also have the option to gain valuable additional certifications from Google, AWS and Salesforce, as well as IE University’s Sustainability Certificate—designed with the knowledge and expertise of the top-ranked IE Business School. You’ll also have the chance to take part in our Global Immersion Week or Social Impact Week, helping you boost your knowledge of the global digital market. In the past, our students have enjoyed immersive experiences in London and Ghana, and new destinations will include optional academic trips to Amsterdam and South Africa.
Once you complete the 10-month program, you will have the opportunity to continue your studies with an additional three-month Career Booster period designed for specialization in your selected industry. During this Career Booster, you can choose to focus on Marketing and Tech, or on Marketing for Consumer Goods, Luxury and Fashion.
