Creative Entrepreneurship, Persuasive Communication, and Social Media Management

The Manager pathway examines the intersection between business, creativity, and technology and provides the tools for entrepreneurs to explore methods to build, showcase, and grow by taking advantage of the opportunities that both new media and social media bring to the business world. A focus on creative entrepreneurship enables students to navigate the complex dynamics of a global business culture that is being rapidly transformed by developments in technology and emerging cultural geographies.  Courses in management, marketing, consumer behavior, business communications, social media, and analytics prompt students to explore the applications of digital media across industries as well as cultivate the skills necessary to address both the challenges and opportunities associated with evolving technology and media landscapes.
