Internet Marketing in College/University?

7 replies
Hey,
I am in my last two years of high school and i have to choose a course in a university soon.

I was looking though the course list and the course business with languages has Internet marketing as a module of the course.

Im wondering what would be covered in Internet marketing in University if anyone has any experience with it?

    Sites like this might give you some idea, but course-details are always available from specific colleges/universities: Internet Marketing Degree - Online Degree in SEO, SEM, and PPC

      I'm an entrepreneurship major so I can agree...

      Don't waste your time with it unless it's required for you to take it...

      In the last entrepreneurship class I took - I became the "go to guy" when we got to the "online marketing" chapter...

      Which is sad - because the teacher was a very successful venture capitalist who was worth millions... but had very very limited knowledge of how business is conducted online...

      Moral of the story - get in the trenches and put in work - you'll learn more... Just use what they teach you in school and adapt it to fit your online business - I've done that with great success

    I'll bet 20 bucks it's not half as valuable as advice you find here on WF every day. no joke.

    I agree with most of the posts in this thread, with how quickly internet marketing evolves, a traditional degree won't carry a lot of weight in the real world. Employers will care more about what can do, as opposed to what you know or what a degree says you know.

    Very true 'coby' these professors with 'experience' usually have limited experience is a range of topics but plenty in one.

    I recommend USF's Internet Marketing Courses.

    I honestly wound not pay for them out of pocket (its like $6,000)

    What i did, is take advantage of the tuition re-inbursment program my old job used to have.

    I must say, that everytime i speak with IM, i have a knowledge edge on many things.

    The course is all online, but i did meet one of the teachers Jay Berkowitz.

    Cool, humble guy.

    He is the CEO of Internet Marketing Consultant Online Advertising Web Marketing and Consulting

    His podcast on iTunes is great too.

    Heres a link to the course:

    Supply Chain | Internet Marketing | Social Media Training

    PM me if you want to know more. I personally took this course; thus i can guide you/let you know about it.

    Good luck brother.

    Diego
