FAQs

Because the more work we do through the Internet, the greater the demand for specialized professionals who know the latest trends in Digital Marketing. Surprisingly, however, in the Greek market there is a shortage of executives who are equally trained in strategic marketing, project and team management and digital marketing.
There is a wide range of positions and titles, from administrative positions to specialist positions in specific subjects. Indicatively:
  • Digital Marketing Manager
  • Senior Marketing Executive
  • Campaign Manager
  • SEO Specialist
  • PPC Specialist
  • Social Media Manager
  • Brand Manager
  • Selects and plans the appropriate content strategy, in order to achieve the company's goals, but also the maximum engagement of the target audience.
  • Analyzes data from different digital platforms to draw conclusions related to the efficiency of actions, but also to consumer behavior.
  • Manages the company's brand in the digital world, with actions related to the identity and image of the brand, but also creating communities.
  • Deals with Search Engine Optimization, a timeless tool for evaluating the quality of website content and overall digital communication.
  • Specializes in digital commerce - an ever-growing sales channel. A trained Digital Marketer is able to combine knowledge related to website performance (e.g., Heatmaps), consumer behavior (e.g., Funnels) and ad performance (e.g., Remarketing) and come up with effective interventions directly in the course of sales.
  • For two very basic reasons. The first is the study guide, which, with its renewed structure, includes a combination of courses and projects that are unique. The second is that the degree you will receive is a Postgraduate (MSc) and not a professional diploma or anything else.
    First, you will learn in practice the "secrets" of each digital tool and you will be able to face and overcome difficulties, since you will have the guidance of your teachers. In addition, the content that you will create and the experience that you will gain, will directly add more value to your resume and will help you to present your personal brand in the field of digital marketers in Greece.
