Online Master’s in Marketing Residency Weekend
The Online MS in Marketing begins with a three-day, on-campus residency weekend. This weekend will constitute the program’s first course, the two-unit “Marketing Trends and Technology,” in which online marketing master’s students will review core concepts in marketing leadership, including investment measurements, ROI/IRR, the use of dashboards for data tracking, and strategies for interfacing with CFOs. While some preparatory reading is required for this introductory course, no written work need be completed prior to traveling to campus. This residency is also a valuable networking opportunity for online marketing master’s students, the chance to meet face to face with their program peers and faculty members.
