Certificate in Marketing
In the past, marketing was defined by the four P's: Product, Promotion, Price and Place (distribution), and was just one component of a business degree. These days it has become responsible for creating brands that people want, understanding why they want them, developing loyalty to them, and even developing relationships and trust with customers that go beyond the brand.
