As digital marketing becomes the new normal and best practices evolve at an unprecedented pace, today’s organizations must work tirelessly to stay on the leading edge. Marketing executives must continually evaluate new opportunities, identify priorities and communicate their vision and results across the organization.
In forward-looking marketing-driven companies, rising mid-career executives face the greatest challenge: leading a younger generation of digital natives while reporting to a well-informed C-suite with high expectations for marketing management.
Designed by senior members of Kellogg’s renowned marketing faculty and former CMOs of leading corporations, the program builds participants’ understanding of the fast-evolving marketing environment and digital capabilities. Upon completing this program, you will be equipped to translate high-level aspirations into tangible marketing initiatives — and lead those initiatives successfully.

“I just had a really smart and meaningful conversation with the owner of a digital marketing company. In the spirit of following up on my action plans from the course, I am working on engaging his company to build up my digital presence along the lines of what we learned. I also think he may attend your program in the very near future.”

"I applied [my learning] from the program today! I led an all-day session about creating personas and identifying common pain points, messaging themes, perceptions and differences. It helped us hone in on an overarching story in a market where maturity levels, buying habits and clients look distinctly different — something which has eluded the team for a long time."
