  • The Millikin Difference

    The field of marketing has evolved rapidly over the past decade with the explosion of digital technologies and platforms, such as smart phones, social media tools, and video sharing sites. To the untrained eye, professional marketing might look like equal parts fun and chaos, but in reality it is a highly orchestrated plan of activity that seeks to connect consumers with information that helps them make informed decisions about a wide range of topics that impact their daily lives.

    Whether you’re interested in stimulating the sale of a certain brand of car or encouraging donations to an important charitable cause, a degree in digital marketing will help you learn the tools and tactics that drive online traffic and the bottom line.  You will build your resume through immersion in the Tabor School of Business.  This may include writing and posting blogs, creating press releases, tracking metrics, and advancing strategy behind digital media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram.
