I was feeling like a “Jill of all trades, master of none" and decided to pursue my masters in digital marketing to better hone my craft as a marketer. What started as a journey to validation and professional development, became a worth-while investment and opportunity to expand what I thought was possible as a digital marketer. I really enjoyed the structure yet flexibility, passion from the professors about the subject matter and the program’s dedication toward a diverse program that is virtual and interactive.Cassandra Gaddis
