Introduction to Marketing

Marketing is an exciting, fast-paced profession that suits people who can think both creatively and strategically. You might want to work on splashy campaigns for big brands, run social media accounts for an organisation you care about, or work with lots of different clients in a creative agency. 

A marketing degree is really versatile and you’ll find it will open lots of doors in your career. All industries need strong marketers—from large corporations to the not-for-profit and government sectors.

You’ll learn how to think creatively and persuasively and develop killer communication skills. Keen to get going? Explore online marketing courses from universities across Australia here, all in one place.
