Market Motive #StudyBlitz

It’s hard to make time.

As dedicated as our members might be to their professional development, as much as they might want to expand their skills and earn the certifications that’ll change their lives, it’s hard to make the time.

You get home from work, dinner needs making, the kids’ homework needs review, the dog needs walking, and by the time you can settle down and focus on a little “me time” all you’ve got energy for is “America’s Got Talent.”

But sometimes all it takes is a few minutes here, a few minutes there, lunch at your desk watching a short video, or the iPad on the treadmill while you work out in the morning.

Wherever you can fit in a few minutes, over time it adds up, and you’ve got new skills, new insights, and new confidence to accelerate your career.

Sometimes you need partners.

Even if you know all this, even though you’re studying on your own at your pace on your time, it helps to know you’re not alone.

Some folks create study groups… others do lunch and learns. Still others put reminders in their calendars to keep them on track.

That’s why we started #StudyBlitz.

STEP ONE: Follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

STEP TWO: Watch for the hashtag “#StudyBlitz”. Every now and then, we’ll drop a reminder in your stream and urge you to take a few minutes to learn.

STEP THREE: Drop everything and study. Okay, not really; we know it’s not always going to be the best time for you. But if you can, take a few minutes and log in, watch a video, and get your learn on.

We truly believe that over time it’ll help you to acknowledge that now and then, a few minutes here and a few minutes there, is all it takes to build momentum.

And maybe you’ll meet a few like-minded peers along the way.

Ready? Go!

Top Gun Students – Spring 2015

top gun students

Each semester, our Digital Marketing Coached Courses challenge experienced marketers to up their games, and empower entry-level marketers to enter the industry better prepared than their peers.

And each semester, our students rise to the challenge, give up their precious family time, or their “America’s Got Talent” and “Orange is the New Black,” and dedicate themselves to the longer term goal of improving their careers and lives through rigorous study, challenging exercises, and personalized interaction with a world-class faculty.

Then they turn in impressive real-world final projects, and wait expectantly to hear from the faculty if they’ve passed the class.

Not everyone does.

But those who do, excel.

And among those who excel are the Top Guns.

One outstanding student from each discipline each semester is awarded “Top Gun” status, conferred based on a demanding algorithm that takes into account a variety of metrics, including homework, exercises, quiz scores, final test scores, and that ever-daunting final project.

Today, we announce the Spring Semester Top Guns for 2015.

Congratulations! We couldn’t be more proud.… Continue reading
