Newhouse School of Public Communications. “Higher education, like business, needs a culture shift.” For Ward, who goes by the handle @DR4WARD on Twitter and has nearly 10,000 followers, the imperative for more courses is clear. “Students with social media certification are getting better jobs and internships,” he says. “Those who harness social communications are in high demand and have an advantage.”
