What’s Up with Social Media? #wasteoftime OR #valueforconsumers on Saturday from 1-2pm
Prof. Barbara Bickart, Chair, Department of Marketing Boston University School of Management Our teens seem obsessed at times with social media—checking Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter updates, Snapchatting with friends, and disclosing secrets to strangers on YikYak. Is social media just a waste of time, or does it provide value to us as consumers and to society as a whole? In this session, we will evaluate some recent social media campaigns to assess how these campaigns work, what makes them effective (or not), and how we measure their impact. In addition, we will explore the skill sets required to operate in this new environment and implications for how we teach marketing.

Share Parents Weekend 2014

Event Details

Parents Weekend is a celebration of Boston University students and their families.

Whether you walk along the Charles River, eat in a University dining hall, attend a faculty presentation, or explore the city of Boston, you are certain to see familiar faces!

Students proudly show off how much they’ve learned, expanded their horizons, and sharpened their talents during the weekend events. Come see what brings the University alive each fall—we look forward to seeing you!

If you would like to attend an event with your student, please include them in the number of tickets you order when registering. If your student has a meal plan, then you will not need to purchase an additional ticket for your student when attending the "Taste of the World" events hosted in our dining halls.
