The digital media market space can present unexpected challenges to standard business models. The Graduate Certificate in Digital Media Management offers courses designed to help managers apply best business practices to these nontraditional challenges. Students will have the opportunity to gain skills in managing functionally diverse digital media teams, responding effectively to response-critical projects and implementing marketing strategy in a variety of media channels. Courses in the program were selected by faculty from the College of Professional Studies’ Master of Professional Studies in Digital Media. The certificate consists of one core course selected from the MPS in Digital Media curriculum combined with existing concentration courses.

F-1 students must be full-time students during their first term and can take a reduced course load in their final academic term, as long as there are no other degree requirements. Students are not eligible for OPT, as they have not completed one academic year (2 quarters having been completed rather than the 3 quarters that is the academic year).
