Lack of Access to Career-Ready Marketing Programs
The University of Arizona (UofA), an award-winning public university based out of Tucson Arizona, has gone to incredible lengths to help bridge their students & alumni to career opportunities among all of their colleges.
While the giant academic institution has created numerous career-ready programs both internally and through third-party partnerships, they hadn't yet narrowed down a program for students interested in marketing and advertising. Not only that, but marketing students have the ability to take top-notch curriculum directly in their business programs, but the programs still lack practical and real access to hiring employers in the public relations, advertising, and marketing fields.
These are just a few of the reasons, UofA began partnering with Six Bricks to bridge the gap for students seeking career-readiness in the field of marketing.
Uncover Student Potential with Practical-Based Marketing Curriculum & Employer-Sponsored Projects
Six Bricks worked with the University of Arizona to nail down a 6-course eight-week Fast Track path, that introduces students to critical marketing topics such as B2B, Content Marketing, Paid Media, Email Marketing, Segmentations, Promotion and so much more.
Not only did these students attend an active and accessible eLearning program, they also had the opportunity to work on real-life marketing projects with hiring employers within the state of Arizona.
82% Student Retention Rate, Higher then Any other Previous School-Sponsored Career-Progression Program
The UofA students not only had positive feedback about the program but for many, this program solidified their career-goals in marketing & public relations.
Through the Six Bricks platform, students were able to take courses throughout their busy summer months, while connecting with their peers, and working with career coaches both at Six Bricks and the University of Arizona to talk about any and everything marketing.
After students pitched their real-marketing projects to employers, some students were prompted with the opportunity to intern for the companies as well, making the program a success all around.
