The advertising industry will continue to go through big changes, as the ways in which people get information and connect with the world evolve. Think about it: 25 years ago, the internet didn’t exist for most of us. Now, we can’t live without it for an hour. And companies have shifted billions of advertising dollars a year to the internet – which goes way beyond banner ads.
At UTEP Connect, you will gain valuable perspective with a broad-based knowledge of advertising and marketing trends, from creative to planning, strategy, research and media. Learn how all these disciplines work together to create messaging that influences an audience, builds brands, and helps companies and organizations succeed.
Once you understand the theories, you’ll put them into practice, developing fully integrated advertising campaigns to add to your portfolio. So, instead of just telling a potential employer why you should be hired, you’ll have work to show how you can apply what you’ve learned.
