As the digital era develops and our reliance on digital technology increases, so does the need for marketing professionals to develop, innovative digital and online marketing strategies to ensure businesses remain competitive and implement successful digital marketing campaigns.

The master’s in digital marketing also covers themes such as location-based marketing, user experience, customer journey mapping and mobile marketing.
