EUGENE, Ore., Dec. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2017 ranking for the Best Online Bachelor's in Marketing. http://www.collegechoice.net/rankings/best-online-bachelors-in-marketing-degrees/
Marketing encompasses a vast array of different jobs and responsibilities, which makes a degree in the field useful in a knowledge-based economy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the demand for marketing professionals will rise across all sectors anywhere from 5 to 9 percent.
"Not everyone has the time, money, or both, to attend full-time residential college," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice said of the ranking. "Luckily, online programs have grown in both quantity and quality over the past few years, shedding their negative stigma. Now you can get an equally competitive college degree online—and pay half the price. This includes in the marketing field."
