Marketing majors are creative, critical thinkers. They listen and gather data about the customers, the business, and the industry. They analyze and solve problems to create experiences that audiences want to repeat. Their solutions contribute to business growth and buyer satisfaction.
At NU, you’ll discover the parts of the industry you love best through simulations, certifications & competitions. You graduate with a diverse portfolio and a far-reaching alumni network. Our graduates go on to work with non-profits, small businesses, Fortune 500 businesses, and agencies – and some even start their own businesses.

Influential Impact Makers
Northwood allowed me to form lasting friendships as well as build an extensive network through the alumni connections. Attending NU was the best decision I’ve ever made as it prepared me for the career field that I chose.

I transferred to Northwood after my sophomore year to join the marketing program which was something my previous school did not offer. A degree in marketing from Northwood has opened up various opportunities for me both in the Marketing industry and in other business-related disciplines. My marketing courses at Northwood have improved my critical thinking, creativity, and general business knowledge.
