"The course has really given me insight into everything that goes into planning a fully launched marketing campaign. I now have an idea how the program will be set up and know how to manage my time around the due dates since it's completely online. Taking a class like IMC 410 has also helped me plan out my week in advance!"

Stacey Creely IMC 510 Instructor

"The IMC 410 class is particularly unique because it gives undergraduates an opportunity to experience the program a little early, which benefits them as they enter the program as graduates students. Coming in as undergraduates, they get to learn the ecampus navigation system and become familiar with expectations and deadlines within the IMC program so when they are accepted into the program as graduate students, they are already prepared to jump right in and start learning."

" The online, 8-week format allowed me to budget my time and clearly see what assignments were ahead of me. Having my classes online allowed me to work at the times that are best for me, when I'm most focused during the week. The half semester timing also allowed me to give my full attention to this course's content to ensure I am understanding it and taking time to read my professor's feedback."
