A Career with Measurable Results!

Marketing provides you with so many career choices in product and service industries, not-for-profit, or create your own business enterprise. If you like to think outside the box, are people oriented, enjoy planning and strategizing, and are results driven, a career in marketing could be for you!

In the third year, you will take advanced courses with emphasis on topics such as communications, project planning, fundraising and event management, business-to-business and more. Your last semester will be dedicated to a work placement so that you get real-world experience that will give you an even bigger advantage in the job market.


  • Provides more job opportunities and career advancement opportunities than two-year program

  • Four-month work placement in the last semester

  • Continue building your studies for your advanced credit towards the Registered Professional Marketer (RPM) designation with the Canadian Institute of Marketing
