For years the world has been going through a major digital transformation. Covid 19 has just acted to accelerate this process.

Employers are looking for people who know how to manage a digital array from a business perspective, those who really understand how to manage a digital system from a business perspective. I see many among those looking for employment who encounter a dead end when they find themselves with a gap in the new world of technology.

Until now there has not been a concentrated academic degree that, in the end, amasses all the new tools that are in the seam between business, technology, marketing and communications – a set of tools, that is very focused on moving ahead and developing in this field.

The master’s degree in Digital Strategy and Marketing Communications includes the need for focus for people in this field, who understand how to develop marketing, digital and business strategy, how to gather information about their customers using advanced methods, how to correctly make use of advanced technological tools available to digital marketing and how, in the end, to manage this digital marketing array from a business perspective. Whoever studies the specialization in Strategy and Digital Transformation are really the people who are doing business in this new world that links between marketing, branding and technology, BI, AI, Gamification and machine learning. There are those that choose digital marketing communication who want to dive deep into the digital world. There are also those that, of course, are more interested in classic advertising and the subjects of spokesmanship, public relations, publicity and the like. The degree studies are only one year. During this year you will be exposed to the large variety that we offer. You will meet people, experience interaction with each other and with the faculty. The degree is set up for working people. We know most of you are already have careers and are working and therefore studies are carried out during afternoon hours once a week and Friday mornings.

“True technological innovation creates added value through solutions for overt or covert needs. It can influence behavior, direct it and in doing so facilitate actions, save time, and give value. The new technological tools create solutions and opportunities to pinpoint messages and give personal value to consumers.”

I believe that:
Dr. Michal Shapira Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Business Administration and Head of the Department of Advertising and Marketing Communications
"We welcome the new degree, which continues our view that in an age of change and revolution in the worlds of content and marketing, academic knowledge must more than ever be relevant and help graduates integrate into the professions of the future.
