The distribution of goods and services is one of the fastest growing business fields in the nation. It is especially appropriate for alert, vigorous individuals who are capable of bringing new ideas and talents to a dynamic and diversified business establishment. Career possibilities include employment as a marketing trainee, marketing research assistant, advertising assistant, customer relations representative, or sales representative.

Can students who major in Marketing transfer to a four-year college or university?
Articulation agreements with public and private institutions offer students who earn the A.A.S. degree the opportunity to transfer all of their coursework to the four-year institution. Students in specialized programs, or who earn an A.A.S. degree should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

What will students learn by studying Marketing? 
They acquire a firm base of knowledge of business law and mathematics, accounting, computer applications, and economics. Students also study courses in general education and specific courses in marketing.

Note: Not all MKT courses are offered every semester both day and evening. Students should call the department chair at 732.906.2594 to discuss course offerings for future semesters.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major? 
Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or completion of the appropriate course.

How long will it take to complete this degree? 
Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
