What you will learn in this program
Marketers ask questions such as: How do you conduct relevant market research? What type of consumers should be in a focus group? How do you increase brand awareness?
Marketers turn ideas into products, find the right price for products, get products to market, and communicate the benefits of products to consumers. Over the course of your studies you'll learn about consumer behaviour, marketing research, new product development, distribution, pricing, and integrated marketing communications. You'll complete formal presentations, group projects and various case studies during the course of your degree.
As a graduate of the Marketing program, you'll be prepared for global career opportunities in the areas of management, marketing, business development, and more.

I was fortunate to get involved in several successful student organizations, most notably the University of Calgary solar car team. As the sponsorship manager, I was tasked with completing the fundraising for two separate solar car projects where we designed, built and raced each car in World Solar Challenge in Australia. This multi-disciplinary project provided me with both the practical skills and experience that nurtured my interest for sustainable technology, and directed me into a career in the energy sector.
