The exchange of goods and services is perhaps the oldest form of business known to humankind. Students completing a marketing degree program can expect classes in business concepts, economics, consumer behavior, advertising, sales, etc. Students complete projects that are applicable to the real world. Upon graduation, there are many career options. Marketing managers might directly liaison with store buyers to get them to carry their products, or they may be able to work in retail and sales management at a business selling products directly to customers.
Careers in marketing require knowledge of market research, consumer behavior, sales, visual arts and general marketing. Experience as a sales rep or buyer or in advertising or public relations is a plus, but there are few employers who will hire people without degrees for most types of marketing jobs.
