Where am I?
Marketing is a vital business process used by all organizations – for-profit, nonprofit and government agencies – to provide consumers with need-satisfying goods and services. It occurs in almost every occupational field and aspect of business – from research, design and promotion to pricing and delivery to the customer. It’s not surprising that companies heavily invest in marketing and employ a significant amount of people to develop and implement their strategies.
A degree in marketing is one of the most versatile you can choose because it offers such a wide variety of career opportunities. It also tends to be less affected by the state of the economy. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that overall employment in the marketing industry is expected to increase by 13 percent through 2018.
