The CTeSP in Digital Marketing, with a specialization in Social Media Management, arises in response to the growing need for professionals who are able to interpret the new communication paradigms, shaped by technology and by consumers more and more active and familiar with digital platforms. In an increasingly globalized and technologically advanced era, there is a need for companies to position themselves online as a way to reach their consumers 24 hours a day.
