Savvy business leaders need to think of social media as central to an overall business strategy, not merely as a tactical implementation. This program explores both the promise and the potential pitfalls of social media as a new channel for organizational communication and decision making. Participants in this program will gain exposure to trends in social media and digital communication, consider the new importance of social media as a communication channel, receive theoretical background driving social media, and examine the best practices of businesses utilizing social media successfully. As social media continues to gain importance as part of the overall business strategy, companies will be seeking leadership to drive this strategy.
