Though part of marketing is selling a product, there’s much more to it than that. College classes in advertising, communications, accounting and sometimes even art help marketing majors understand the importance of researching customer wants and needs, developing strategies, planning and setting prices based on economic conditions and creating campaigns that will yield desired results. Marketing grads can also go on to earn MBAs or work for public relations firms, non-profit agencies and the government. All that’s needed is creativity, drive and – oh yeah – enough money to pay for school.
