MCC partners with Facebook to deliver new online digital marketing program
OMAHA, Neb. — Metropolitan Community College and Facebook have partnered to offer an online digital marketing program, set to begin in January 2020. The nine-month certificate program is fully online with instructors that will provide guidance, grading and feedback.
“MCC’s partnership with Facebook will enhance and build the skills of digital marketers throughout the region,” said Victoria Novak, MCC Workforce Innovation Division director of Workforce and IT Innovation—Corporate Training. “We are proud to offer this robust program.”
The program consists of six modules that build essential skills businesses look for when hiring and promoting digital marketers, including content marketing strategy, analytics and performance optimization, social media and email marketing and search and display advertising. Upon completion, each student will receive a digital badge (a verifiable learning credential) and materials to create an e-portfolio that prospective and current employers can review.
“The need for social media and digital marketing career professionals is growing rapidly alongside the new tools that are developing daily. This program provides the latest education available to all skill levels. The online program model allows students to learn from anywhere, any time,” said Kim Whiteside, MCC Workforce Innovation Division director of Workforce and IT Innovation—Corporate Online. “In addition to benefitting individuals, it can also elevate digital marketing for employers through enrollment of team members.”
