Marketing Degrees and Scholarships 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment in marketing and promotions is set to grow by 6% from 2019 to 2029, making it an above average sector of growth in the American job market. This is excellent news given the primary concern of prospective students often manifesting in worries over return on the investment of tuition. 

One way to mitigate these worries–and to enhance the overall prospects of a marketing program in general–is to secure a scholarship. A scholarship can provide students with the financial confidence to focus more mental energy on schoolwork. And in some cases, a scholarship can lead to the excellent outcome of graduating debt free.
