Social Media Club

Promoting diversity of opinions and perspectives

“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”- Martin Luther King, Jr.

In today’s economy, management graduates are faced with one of the most challenging job markets in the annals of world history. They need to update their job search strategy to stand a chance. An innovative way to do this is to add social media to the mix.

The concept of social media club today is quite different from what it was only a few years ago. Social media today is not just about updating status or posting pictures from a party held on the previous night. Instead it is changing the way we search for jobs, communicate, learn, share and do business.

There is an imperative today to include the social media in the framework of higher education because it is literally changing the world. The Social Media Club at National School of Business was formed to facilitate interaction among members to explore key issues facing our society as technologies transform the way we connect, communicate, collaborate and relate to each other. The Club enables you to explore your personal and professional passions by helping you connect with a community of your peers based on both geography and areas of interest. Our club will ensure that the world of social media does not become an echo chamber of self-reinforcing thoughts, but is instead fueled by diversity of opinions and perspectives.

We are starting a discussion on how membership in Social Media Club can serve as a ‘trusted mark’ for people to know that someone is ethical, understands social media and is committed to the advancement of the industry. Our club has gone beyond being a buzz phrase and has sparked widespread curiosity and interest in our network. Needless to say, our students and faculty are now eager to learn about and use interactive social media tools.
