Enthusiasm for the classes has been growing. "NC State was extremely pleased to see the Spring Social Media Management classes completely sell out," instructor Martin Brossman said." In our afternoon and evening programs we graduated a total of 35 students. Now, for the Summer session, Karen Tiede and I are looking forward to teaching the certificate program again, as well as offering new complementary and support classes.  Karen will be teaching Pinterest for Business. I will be teaching Social Selling with LinkedIn, assisted by Greg Hyer (, WordPress, assisted by Andrew Hill (, and the fundamentals of top social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+, in a series starting in July titled Core Competency for Social Media in Business, which will be an optional prerequisite for the  next Certificate of Social Media Management Program to be offered in the Fall.”
