Marketing departments from all sectors are in search of well-qualified employees in the area of digital marketing. They are looking for candidates with a combination of skills in communication, marketing and sales as well as IT skills.
Unique combination of IT and Digital Marketing
Classic marketing degrees traditionally focus on business knowledge and degrees in IT tend to focus on technical skills. The increase of digitalization has led to a disparity on the labor market: Companies are having problems finding well educated employees in the “interdisciplinary” field of digital marketing. The MSc in Digital Communication and Marketing: Graduates from degree programs with a focus on business administration or communication that did not have a focus on IT, as well as people with sound work experience in business administration can use this degree program to expand their career options to a digital area. Business administration skills are a prerequisite for the degree program, IT skills will be taught throughout the program and linked with contents from communication, marketing and sales.
