The book itself was inspired by MSU’s trademarked New Media Driver’s License® Seminar series. The class, known as ADV420, has been a huge hit as an off-campus offering for MSU students as well as for students and “lifelong learners” from other campuses. It has been described as the most popular off-campus class at MSU. In-class full-day sessions of the class are offered on the Novi campus of Walsh College of Business and Accountancy.
Dr. Richard T. Cole, alongside Derek Mehraban, conceived the course while he was chairman of MSU’s Department of Advertising, PR, and Retailing. Derek currently serves as its principle instructor along with Michal Lorenc, who heads a division of Google Adwords headquartered in Ann Arbor. Both instructors use their involvement in the class to identify talent for internships and jobs in their companies, as well as referring students to other social media, online PR and digital marketing employers. The course was designed as a means of equipping public relations and advertising students with the ability to become effective drivers in a wide variety of social networks, and in using selected media tools and online technology for business and social causes.
