Go Webster Thailand Go…Google!

Dynamic Webster Thailand teams began in January with a USD 250 budget from Google and the challenge of coming up with a Google AdWords campaign strategy to market a local tour company’s packages to English speaking tourists and expats. The marketing dynamos included Webster MBA student Saikat Basu along with Meghna Rana; Jemima Sudarshan; Sumendra Singh; Jetaban Gogoi; and Sak McDonough, an MA Media Communications student who was glad to have taken part in the competition and especially the day visit to the Google offices.

“We learned more about adverts which I though was quite challenging and you really need a passion for it, but at the same time I actually took a lot from it. I totally enjoyed the visit provided by Webster.”

Hands-On Experience!

Students were taught how to utilize Google AdWords as a valuable marketing tool, present their strategy to real business owners and to learn from the Google experts themselves! With students from different courses and nationalities, the focus is also on working as a team; working with people with different skillsets and approaches.
