Our marketing major with a Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB) degree program is designed for anyone who’s ever watched a clever or catchy TV commercial or engaged with a brilliant ad campaign and thought, “I’d like to do that.”
If you’re passionate about using the power of messaging to sell services and products or want to learn how to leverage the digital marketing landscape, Purdue University Northwest’s (PNW’s) marketing degree program is the ideal way to jumpstart a lucrative, dynamic career.
Without taking more than 120 credit hours, you can both earn the marketing major and a minor in Digital Marketing. The digital marketing minor gives you both a comprehensive foundation and hands-on learning in critical areas of digital marketing including both paid (advertising focused) and owned (company’s own website, email, social pages, etc.) areas. You’ll be able to say you’ve built websites, run search engine optimization strategies, analyzed and created email marketing campaigns, run social media campaigns, practiced paid digital search and placement campaigns, and competed in international digital marketing competitions. And, you will become Google Analytics certified which is an important credential if you want to work in this digital marketing. Whether you’re in the College of Business, or another college, this minor will give you the tools you need to succeed in the digital space.
