Yes, you heard us right! We’ve partnered with Google to give you an opportunity to directly develop and execute a paid advertising marketing campaign for one of their supported nonprofits using Google Adwords. You’ll get to work with some serious money - $10,000 USD - while helping a non-profit have a more successful online presence.

Managing a real budget is one of the best ways to showcase your value to future employers. You help others, while getting real world experience. Not only will this project make you stand out from the rest, the experience you gain will be invaluable the next time you have to set up an AdWords campaign.
The Digital Marketing Career Track’s hands-on pedagogy and 1:1 support not only gets you a job more quickly, it ensures you'll have impact right away in the job that you land.

Here's how:
  • $$$ — You’ll get real dollars to spend on ad buys to test (and show) your skills.
  • You’ll build a legit portfolio demonstrating your experience in marketing a single product from beginning to end using various channels and strategies––proving you have the technical chops to excel in the role.
  • At the end of the course, you'll also complete 1 capstone project where you define a new digital marketing strategy for an established company or product to showcase your ability to extend frameworks of thinking to complex marketing challenges. That can be pitching a proposal to a target company, running a paid advertising campaign for a Google-supported nonprofit, or executing on a branding campaign for your own business.
  • You’ll get ready to earn industry-recognized Google Adwords, Google Analytics for Beginners, and Facebook Ads certifications—resume-builders that’ll set you apart from other professionals.
We work with industry experts to determine the most relevant digital marketing topics, and find the best resources on each topic (e.g. videos, tutorials, and lectures).

Note that many of the videos and resources in the curriculum are not created in-house by us. Instead, we find and curate the best resources available on the subject. Think of us as a college professor who creates a syllabus by combining the best textbook chapters, articles, papers, and projects (instead of teaching from only their own textbook).

We believe that the curated curriculum is our unique strength. By standing on the shoulders of giants, we’re able to update the curriculum frequently, and always teach the latest tools and technologies.
You’ll have support from:
  • Your mentor: A digital marketing professional will provide weekly 1:1 guidance and accountability in a 30-minute call.
  • Community teaching assistants: Dedicated help any time you’re stuck, and available to offer detailed feedback on each project.
  • Career coaches: Your career coach will help with resume reviews, mock interviews, job search strategy etc.
  • Springboard student advisors: Our advisors will answer questions, discuss goals, and provide tips and support on any aspect of the program.
  • And finally, your classmates: You can connect to form study groups, get feedback, and work on projects together! We have an active online community that you’ll receive lifetime access to.
We will provide a certificate of completion to all students who complete the course and receive mentor approval on their final project(s). You can display your certificate on LinkedIn via our integration, or add to your resume.
Also of huge value is the Google and Facebook certifications that are integrated into the curriculum. These industry recognized certifications are an excellent way to differentiate yourself in the market.
  • Google Analytics for Beginners
  • Google AdWords
  • Facebook Ads
Getting certified is not required, but we highly recommend that you do. By the time you finish the course, you will have the knowledge, skills, and tools to effectively leverage digital channels for almost any type of business.
All of our programs are entirely online. Location is no obstacle to your professional development. All you need is an internet connection.
To ensure a successful learning experience, you must be proficient in spoken and written English. You should also hold a Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from any educational institution in any subject. Most employers still require a Bachelor's degree for these roles.

Note: A successful Digital Marketer has a quantitative and analytical aptitude, is comfortable writing customer-facing copy, is an active user of digital technologies, and displays ambition and the ability to learn new skills quickly. Experience with code is not necessary.
