Digital Media & AdWords Programme


What is the programme about?

The Google team work with clients, small and large, to maximise their digital presence. The team kept hearing their clients say how hard it was to find skilled and experienced digital media professionals, so, known for creative ideas and innovative solutions, the Google team hatched a plan. What if they could build awareness about career opportunities in digital media so that more people know about this exciting evolving word, and also train people in the skills the industry needs.

In 2013 they teamed up with CDES and did just that! Offering University of Auckland students industry coveted skills, free Google AdWords accreditation, and real industry experience.

Who is it for?

This programme is a MUST for any student (from any faculty) interested in marketing and advertising!
