Marketing

Marketing is about people and how they make decisions. Professionals in the field are creative, enjoy meeting goals and seek the excitement of bringing new customers to a business. While pursuing a degree in marketing, you will learn how to build a website that sells, develop a marketing plan and make sales presentations in a professional manner.

Your career may take you to an entry-level position in Internet marketing, sales, advertising, public relations, promotions management, retailing or customer service. These marketing skills are needed across several industries – real estate, insurance, automotive, manufacturing and retail.

Depending on your path, SC4 has agreements in place with four-year institutions that allow students to transfer a significant number of credits towards a bachelor’s degree – essentially completing year three at SC4 before transferring. Three such programs are in place with Northwood University, Siena Heights University and Walsh College. More information about transfer agreements.

Start here first by picking the path towards a marketing credential that best fits you – whether it’s our associate’s degree, certificate program, or one of two skill set programs:
