Degree Philosophy

"The marketing degree at Douglas College is going to provide students an opportunity to continue their studies in the same student-oriented and supportive environment that they have come to expect at Douglas College. Increased globalization is forcing the Canadian labor force to re-train and recreate a competitive advantage which is going to have to come from an educated workforce. Our students are ready to take on that challenge and at Douglas College we are confident we will be able to deliver the education that is going to provide students with job ready skills for the new economy."
