Theoretical concepts are important to understanding the framework of digital marketing, but the practical experience you’ll gain through our bootcamp is what will make you especially attractive to employers. Old Dominion University’s Digital Marketing Bootcamp provides numerous opportunities to apply your skills to the real world, including hands-on exercises, agency-simulated projects, and project-based lessons.

Agency-Simulated
Projects

At the beginning of the program, students will form agency-like groups, assuming a role they’re passionate about pursuing upon program completion. In these groups, you’ll work on a wide variety of projects commonly experienced in an agency setting, including constructing brand architecture, pitch decks, creative briefs, and more.

You’ve done the hard work – we want to make sure you’re able to show it off to potential employers. Throughout the program, you’ll have the opportunity to build a robust and well-rounded digital portfolio that spotlights your different creative projects and skills, positioning you as a highly qualified candidate for digital marketing roles.

An Innovative Career Built
on Creativity and Versatility

LinkedIn ranks digital marketing (and several of its specializations such as social media and affiliate marketing) among the skills companies have needed most in the last two years.* This trend will only continue as more and more organizations understand the importance of attracting online audiences for business growth.

This means the demand for skilled and creative digital marketers is skyrocketing. Digital marketing roles are vital to helping brands boost their awareness, engage with their audiences, and identify and win new customers.

Digital marketing roles are as versatile as they come, allowing you to try many different functions and methods while you work to promote a product or service. Some positions involve a high degree of creativity, while others require deep analytical thinking. There are operational positions that are more tactical and hands-on, and strategic roles that require the ability to see the bigger picture.

The ODU Digital Marketing Bootcamp opens the door to this dynamic world, and gives you the skills to succeed in whichever career path you choose.
