Globe University offers students the chance to not only earn a degree, but change their lives for the better by increasing their self-confidence as well as their earning potential. As a career college, our mission is to help students gain the skills needed to find entry-level jobs in their chosen field.
We have spent significant time and effort developing our certificate and associate degree programs in internet marketing. Here are six great reasons Globe University should be your first choice for an internet marketing program:
1. Employer-Developed Program
We consulted with employers to build our program to cover the skills and knowledge needed to find a job in online marketing. The industry is growing quickly and employers are finding a skills gap when they are hiring. Our program is designed to fill that gap.
We continue to work with employers to keep our programs updated with the changes in technology and best practices. An internet marketing program needs to include:
- Web Analytics – Analytics is measurement. You can measure clicks, likes, comments and conversions. Marketers and employers want to see the results of their efforts.
- Content Marketing – Internet marketing requires content. You need to learn what to produce and where to share it.
- Social Media – You can produce content, but if no one sees it, it’s a fail. You need to know what social media platforms appeal to different demographics and how to engage with your audience.
- Search Engine Optimization – Better known as SEO, find out how to make sure the search engines find your content.
2. Instructors with Internet Marketing Experience
A quality program needs quality instructors. At Globe University, our instructors have industry experience. They bring real-world knowledge into the classroom to pass on to our students.
Internet marketing continues to grow and develop and instructors who also work in industry will know the latest best practices. They will share their resources for keeping up with industry trends.
3. Hands-on Learning
You know you learn better when you get to do things rather than just read about them. Hands-on learning is more engaging and effective than reading a textbook.
Learn to build your own social media profiles and grow your reach as part of our internet marketing program. Produce and test your own content by creating your own blog. Learn web analytics through multiple dashboards so you can take your knowledge into your job search and be able to show employers what you have done.
Globe University’s emphasis on hands-on learning is just one more reason why so many people are drawn to its programs in the first place.
4. Small Class Sizes
You don’t want to be just a number in your classes. Globe University understands that small class sizes are the key to each student receiving the attention, feedback and one-on-one time they deserve from their instructors. Our class sizes are limited so you won’t see classes with 100 students or more. You’ll have the opportunity to get to know your instructors.
DeAnn Perzel, Globe University-La Crosse instructor, had this to say about small class sizes: “Smaller class sizes allow me to help students feel they are part of the campus and in control of their learning. Giving them a more personalized education experience gives them the confidence they need to speak up in class and take on leadership roles in class activities.”
5. Career Services for Students
Our career services teams at Globe University can help with your job search while you are in school and after you graduate. They will help you build your resume, write cover letters and practice your interview skills.
They are great resources to assist you with finding internet marketing positions and can help you find internship or volunteer opportunities while in college.
Globe University works year-round to cultivate valuable business relationships within the community. These community partnerships are benefit students because they help provide potential job opportunities after graduation.
6. Build Your Resume
Our hands-on philosophy offers students real-world experience that can build a strong resume. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in service and applied learning projects to practice their skills.
While enrolled in the internet marketing programs at Globe University, share your goals with our instructors, staff and other students. You never know when someone you have connected with will consider recommending you for an open position.
