IMPORTANT UPDATE RE: COVID-19

Due to the rapidly-changing nature of the coronavirus situation, the Digital Marketing Certificate will be delivered online.

Please read more about how we are managing this situation to ensure the quality of our program.

How is our program affected by the coronavirus situation?

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and stable in these turbulent times.

The May semester will still move ahead, adapted for a real-time, video learning environment.

With the rapidly evolving situation around COVID-19, planning and predicting the future has been very difficult. We have spent considerable time following the news, consulting our instructors, and evaluating our options for the Telfer Digital Marketing Certificate.

It is not likely that in-person classes will be possible in time for our May program, so we are making some modifications to prioritize everyone’s safety while delivering on the same level of premium learning and collaboration that our students sign up to receive.

We also understand that many people are feeling extra pressure to adapt their role at work or shift their career focus due to the circumstances, so we feel it is important that we make every effort to provide this valuable learning and networking opportunity.

To be clear, this is going to very closely resemble our existing program:

  • Human connection in real-time is an essential ingredient to this program and will not be sacrificed;
  • All classes will be live, at their originally scheduled times;
  • Students will be required to have video activated during the session to allow for a more personal connection and experience;
  • Classes will remain the same size, to ensure an intimate environment;
  • Breakout sessions in small teams will be facilitated to allow you to learn from each other and work collaboratively;
  • We are adding a dedicated moderator role to help support in-class discussion and working sessions.

As more companies shift to remote worker models to broaden their talent pool, this is an excellent opportunity to get first-hand experience working in remote teams and collaborating with others in a way that you will likely experience professionally in the near future.

If you have any questions or concerns about the changes to the program, please feel free to reach out and we would be happy to discuss things in more detail.

Stay healthy :)
