Social media strategists are largely self-proclaimed. Now, they have the opportunity to be taken more seriously in the online world. Newhouse is offering a social media strategy certificate, that will give some advanced social media training to 'experts,' who want to have something backing them up. It's a great tool that will inspire a separation between social media experts and social media enthusiasts.
You can take part in the course online, on either your PC or MAC. It consists of 5 modules, and 15 lessons which take you through the social media training. For more information on the Curriculum, click here: https://newhouse.hootsuite.com/course-curriculum/ This certificate is no easy feat however. You will need to put in 60-90 hours of training and pay $2,200 per person.
The professor is Dr. William J. Ward, you can find out more about him here: https://newhouse.hootsuite.com/professor/
