What is Digital Marketing?

Digital marketing connects us directly to our favorite brands. From must-follow social feeds to customized email campaigns, every industry needs digital teams who can speak directly to consumers. Companies now invest $220 billion per year in mobile ads. And that number is rising: By 2026, 68% of all advertising budgets will go to digital campaigns. That’s why digital marketing is one of the fastest-growing fields.

Digital marketing is a high-growth field with a big skills gap. That means current employees can’t do what companies want or need. And the best way to learn these skills? A Certificate in Digital Marketing from Mount Saint Mary’s University Los Angeles.
