And I am most excited that we are about to be rolling out with another new class in the Fall of this year titled none other than…”Social Media Strategy.” Awesome. We are tying to be on the forefront here in St. Louis. I have also just implemented a new Digital Media Marketing Advisory Board. Too cool.

I think that most useful things are learned in practice.
Cheers!

I’m currently running a survey on social media and faculty-student interaction that I hope better informs faculty about these dynamics (http://byanyothernerd.blogspot.com/2013/02/social-media-student-faculty-project.html).

thanks,
Lance

There is much more that business schools and other university programs need to do to prepare their students for successful Digital Era careers. I first wrote about this need in a blog post in June 2011, and I’ve been banging the drum ever since!

We still have a long way to go, in spite of how critical the need is…

We see even greater potential for a similar module but for Social Media Marketing. Hopefully we’ll soon find the resources to develop a high quality, intricate experience that will allow social media marketing scenarios to unfold in a safe, permissive and risk-free environment.

It’s not that unheard of.

Hopefully this past president’s day really highlighted the need to harden information systems as well as adopting usage policy, legal ramifications that could possibly ensue from copyright infringement, and most of all a clear understanding of which social media services are vulnerable, why, and if so what’s the continuity or response plan when something goes wrong. @eb_p1

I also believe that education is about improving yourself, finding more about what interests and fascinates you and not always about preparing yourself for the jobs market.
Maybe those janitors with PhDs are the happiest guys alive. There’s far more to life than a career.
