Marketing Management

Marketers are creative and resourceful individuals who connect consumers with solutions – what they need, want, or maybe never dreamed of. It is an area of business that blends people skills, analytics and ever-changing technology. Oakton's faculty bring a wealth of industry knowledge, teaching experience, and individualized care to support you in reaching your goals. 

There are a number of different avenues you can take in Marketing:

  • Professional selling
  • Public relations
  • Advertising
  • Customer service
  • Business marketing
  • Internet marketing
  • Social media marketing
  • Brand marketing

The Marketing Management Applied Associate of Science (A.A.S.) is ideal for someone who is exploring this field or for those who are interested in starting or growing their own business. It is intended to lead directly to a career or upskill for career advancement.

If you are interested in transferring to a 4-year school, we encourage you to consult with the Office of Advising, Transitions and Student Success to compare if the Marketing Management (A.A.S.) or Associates in Arts (A.A.) would be the right fit for you.
