Degree Philosophy

"Students want and need the knowledge and skills to jumpstart their marketing careers, but they also need the complete package of critical thinking, teamwork, leadership and other skills to carry them through to success throughout their careers. We, the Marketing Faculty at Douglas College, are committed to ensuring that our graduates get exactly what they need. For many of our students, that means a degree. Every year most of our best students go on to complete their degree elsewhere. We have the expertise to provide our students with a top quality degree experience right here at Douglas, which is exactly what they are telling us they want."
