My favorite part about this program is that within the first semester I have already been able to start taking the classes that I am passionate about. My goal after obtaining my degree is to work internationally, marketing for luxury designers.

I chose Northwood because of this major. I want to hopefully one day run my own business or work for a big fashion brand marketing and buying products. It’s exciting that I can finally turn a passion of mine into a career with this degree!
