The summer II session just ended… I fought against teaching social media marketing in a 6-week summer format… But my professional MBA students proved me wrong!
My fear was that the experiential nature of the course would be negatively impacted by the compressed time frame. But motivated students seemed to use the time frame as an excuse to immerse themselves in social media.
One major takeaway from this class: Twelve new blogs! They are listed below by category. Check them all out!
Food and Wine
How about learning authentic Turkish cooking… with the promise of relatively simple recipes!

Social media marketing class was a great opportunity for me. I always planned to run a food recipe blog and the class gave me chance and encourage to start my own with the help of social media tools to manage and improve. It was a great experience for me and I enjoyed a lot.
I REALLY enjoyed this class!
