Marketing is the art of persuasion: how to convey ideas, manage buzz and create desire. You persuade people to do things: buy a car or vote for a politician. And it doesn’t matter if you sell smart phones or sustainable living, you’ll learn the strategies, tactics and measurements behind influencing consumer choices.
During your degree, you develop decision-making skills, exercise your creative mind and study consumer behaviour. You’ll also:
Examine current marketing theories and practices
Identify the information needed to tackle marketing problems
Develop an ability to adapt to constantly changing marketing environments
Hone your communication and personal-selling skills
Learn to analyze market metrics and other types of marketing data
