Degree Philosophy
"Student centred and flexible programming really makes the Douglas marketing department stand out. I am energized every day by the commitment of faculty and the quality of students that show up on our doorstep ready to learn and engage in the field of marketing. It's clear to me that students want more from Douglas business and the Applied Marketing Major will deliver with our service learning opportunities, case-based approach to teaching and genuine commitment to student success beyond the classroom."
