What Can You Do with a Marketing Degree?

Radek, what jobs can you get with a Marketing Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with a Marketing Degree?

It’s hard to find a field of study more ubiquitous than marketing. Marketing is everywhere, and marketing majors can go in just about every direction: big business, small business, banking, government, politics, education, health care, real estate, nonprofits… and the list goes on. Potential employers range from the American Heart Association to Geico to CBS to Coldwell Banker. Wherever there are consumers, there will be job opportunities for marketing degree holders.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

  • Overall employment of advertising, marketing, promotions, and sales managers is expected to grow about as fast as average over the next several years.
  • Employment of market and survey researchers is expected to grow much faster than average; however, job opportunities will be most plentiful for those with a master’s degree or Ph.D.
  • Employment of marketing managers will grow about as fast as average. Marketing managers are less subject to downsizing or outsourcing than other managers. Still, keen competition is to be expected for the best positions.
