If you’re interested in a well-paying career that lets you dive deep into the secrets of a company, consider a degree in marketing.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for a marketing manager in 2017 topped more than $132,000--but that’s not the only great thing about pursuing a career in this field.
Professor Anthony Fruzzetti, EdD, has been teaching in the marketing department at Johnson & Wales University for the past 18 years. He says that marketing is a career that allows students to go behind the scenes and see what happens behind the curtain.
“We study everything from consumer behavior to market research, analytics, advertising and marketing and promotions, social media,” he said. “Everything happens within the marketing department.”
