UAlg will have a Higher Professional Technical Course in Digital Marketing

Attentive to the needs of the labor market, the University of Algarve will increase its training offer with a Higher Professional Technical Course (CTeSP) in Digital Marketing.  The course was created to respond to the growing demand of employers for human resources, providing current and future professionals in the area of digital marketing with broad skills.

This new CTeSP, developed by the School of Management, Hospitality and Tourism (ESGHT), aims to train professionals with skills to plan, manage, execute, monitor and evaluate, within organizations, digital marketing and e-commerce operations, including online campaigns, content on social networks and other digital platforms.

The curriculum plan was designed with the support of industry professionals, namely Marketing Directors from different organizations.

These professionals are expected to acquire skills that allow them to develop strategies for digital content; develop and coordinate digital marketing campaigns; manage the company or organization's social networks; create and manage an e-commerce business; develop and implement email and mobile marketing campaigns, among others.

A CTeSP is a study cycle that grants a level 5 higher professional technician diploma of the National Qualifications Framework. It lasts two academic years, consisting of a set of curricular units organized in general and scientific training components, technical training and on-the-job training, which is materialized through an internship. The holder of this diploma may enter the UAlg degree courses, through a special competition designed for them, acquiring the respective academic degree.
