Digital Study Tour

The Digital Retailing program plans to launch a new, for credit Digital Study Tour in May, 2017. Join a select group of students in this course which is designed to expose students to the Digital Retailing industry and engage them in an intense study of key impact online businesses. The route begins in Seattle, then travels South along the coastline to Portland, Oregon, and finally to the Silicon Valley in San Francisco, which are all prime locations for pursuing a career in eCommerce and digital occupations. Those travelling along will go behind the scenes, meeting with industry executives and experiencing firsthand how websites are built and maintained as well as how the supporting technologies are integrated and utilized. During this intense 6 day living and learning experience, students tour corporate headquarters facilities of marquis retailers and social media giants while also experiencing the sights, sounds and tastes of the U.S. West coast. Tentative corporate destinations include Nordstrom.comAmazon.comNike.comFacebook.comMacys.comGoogle.com and Walmart.com.
