With the emergence of digital marketing technologies, marketing has become a highly scientific, data-driven and interdisciplinary practice. The rapid growth in areas such as behavioral targeting, social media marketing, mobile marketing, demand generations, marketing analytics, marketing automation, and marketing operations has created a significant demand for highly trained and experienced marketing professionals.
