Consider a Sales and Marketing Career
Sales and marketing are excellent career fields. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that high earnings are common among sales and marketing managers, and because of the importance and high visibility of the jobs, the managers are prime candidates for advancement.*
A job candidate can apply the same skill set used in sales and marketing management to related occupations, including promotions, public relations, market research, product development, advertising sales, media relations and sales representatives (independent and as employees of corporations).
Preparation for a marketing career
Although some employers ask for a specific degree, such as a bachelor’s (4-year degree) in marketing, there are many sales & marketing career opportunities for graduates of 2-year business programs. Globe University offers two programs specifically for the sales and marketing professional:
Both programs are offered through our online college and at convenient campus locations.
