Student Testimonials

"This class was by far one of the best classes that I've ever taken. After a couple of years of running my own company, I felt that I should take a class to prepare for my MBA. The Jacobs and Stone certificate more than met my expectations. Every class had experts coming to the classroom or talking to us via satellite. We were learning the latest developments in the multichannel marketing world. Dr. Kelly made the transitions from one topic to another very smooth by always connecting what we were hearing and seeing to the goals of this certificate.
In short, everything that you see in the syllabus will be thoroughly discussed in the classroom. You'll also get the best opportunity to network with business leaders as well as colleagues in your industry that are more than happy to share with you their experience."
-Reda Chafai

What are the requirements for the Integrated Marketing Communications Certificate?
To receive the IMC certificate, students must successfully complete three required courses and two elective courses plus one seminar. Follow the link to learn more about the IMC Certificate and review the list of courses.
Do I get DePaul credit for this class?
No, but some DePaul CPE courses have been approved for CEU credits. This is a professional education class with different requirements than courses taken for academic credit.
How big is the class?
Class size is limited to allow for a more interactive environment in the classroom. Most classes have fewer than 20 students.
Will I have to write papers and take exams?
While the assignments differ for each instructor and course, you will be assigned non-graded homework, and you will receive feedback on each of your assignments. Some courses also include in-class presentations.
Are the courses very technical?
Some of the topics are technical but are described in a way that a non-technical person can understand. At every stage of the program, theory is integrated with the technology - we aim to provide insight for technical and non-technical participants.
What is the difference between a certificate and a certification?
A certificate is earned after completion of a course or a series of courses. Certificates are usually awarded by a training provider or an educational institution. Certification typically includes an experience, an educational component and requires passing an exam. Certifications are awarded by governmental and/or professional agencies and often require recertification to remain certified.
