You’re creative. You love people. Your friends and family think you’re a little crazy because you’re more interested in television commercials than the actual programs. Sound familiar? If so, a career in marketing sounds like a smart move.
At Michigan Tech, we blend business and technology to help you develop the analytical, technical, and communication skills needed to excel in this fast-paced profession. No massive lectures here; instead, you’ll learn in small classes and get to know your professors one-on-one, all while advancing your knowledge through research.
