Recognizing the growing demand for qualified social media professionals in the business world, HootSuite University launched the Higher Education Program in January with the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
This partnership between industry and academia resulted in a case study outlining how social media professor Dr. William J. Ward (aka DR4WARD) integrated HootSuite University into his curriculum, empowering his students with the social media skills required in today’s workforce.
This collaboration allowed Dr. Ward to focus on higher level social concepts and strategies, while HootSuite University provided the up-to-date content and hands-on experience needed to educate the next generation of industry professionals.
