Higher Education and social media advertising
A recent study from the Harvard Business Review uncovered that 79% of companies surveyed use social media channels, while only 12% believe they are using them effectively. In today’s rapidly-evolving media landscape, social media has not only become a fundamental tool for communication, but a must-have skill in a multitude of industries.
But even with this clear demand for skilled social media practitioners, Higher Education is constantly challenged with bridging the gap between traditional instruction and these new skills required for today’s digital workforce.
With the right amount of practice and social media education, students can be empowered with a competitive edge in their future careers. But educators and professors also face the challenge of creating a current curriculum for their students in order to effectively teach social media – a constantly evolving industry.
