The Content Marketing Specialist plays an important role in helping create compelling content for the four MBA programs (Full-Time, Professional, Executive, and Online) and Executive Education programs (non-degreed open enrollment, certificate, online, and custom) and positioning Executive Education as a premier business education solution-provider.
In this position, you’ll work within the marketing team to plan, research, write, produce, and edit multiple forms of content – everything from emails to in-depth guides. While your primary focus will be marketing content creation, you’ll support additional communications functions, including website SEO and keyword research, department-wide content requests, and social media.
The ideal candidate is a positive advocate for our mission and is just as passionate about counseling prospective students on which program might be the right fit for them as they are about crafting smart campaigns to excite prospective students.
