Since 2014, I’ve been teaching digital strategy and social media part-time at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. This summer the school is offering a new program designed for recent graduates who want to develop applied skills that can translate across industries, and add to the knowledge they’ve gained in their undergraduate programs.
This immersive and intensive “Summer Professional Edge Program” offers three certificates: Business Essentials, Project Management Essentials, and Digital Strategy and Communication Essentials. I’m teaching in the latter; right now we’re preparing the course materials, which will build on the success of our existing curriculum, with the addition of practical career skills.
If you are a new grad in the Toronto area, or you have a new grad in your life, I encourage you to check out this program. We hope it will help learners to develop the skills they need to launch their careers in our fast-moving society.
