I chose the full-time Digital Marketing Professional Program because I didn’t have a marketing background to help me start a career as a digital marketer. I wanted to be taught by industry professionals to build the fundamental skills and knowledge to confidently call myself a digital marketer. The open-space and tech vibe of the school was exactly the environment I wanted to be in.
