Speaking in this occasion Vidur Kapoor, Chairman, BIBS, said, "As consumer behaviour is changing, conventional marketing is changing by leaps & bounds too. With so less time available to consume traditional media, corporates are finding new technologies to send across brand messages to their target audience. Digital marketing is the most promising of all new age media. Hence, BIBS launched a course PGPDM (Post Graduate Progamme in Digital Marketing) that would arm future marketers with the relevant skill set."
Digital Marketing is not only the future; it’s a need of today. The opportunities for a Digital Marketing professional are huge in India right now. The Internet users have reached up to around 500 million and we have become a country with the world’s 3rd largest internet population and within the next 3 years, additional 300 million will get added to the population accessing the Internet in India. The current increase rate is measured at around 35%. The industry has approx. 8 lacs job options at present and is anticipating an increasing need in the digital space within the coming years.
Looking at the future of Digital Marketing with an objective of giving quality education to the students, BIBS has started a 2 year full-time management program, the PGPDM; it gives students a deeper understanding of the digital marketing curriculum through an industry led team of experts. The course consists of 12 -15 months of intensive class room training followed by 6-8 months of industry internships. What’s more you get to lay hands on multiple live projects and also acquire in-built certifications from Google, Face book, Twitter, Hubspot amongst others.
Students, officials, faculties from BIBS and other guests were present on this occasion.
