A marketing degree typically takes three to four years to complete at the bachelor's level. However, in some countries, it is possible to obtain an associate degree in two years and still be eligible for a marketing job. The amount of time it takes to finish the credits depends on your enrollment status and the number of credits you have from prior studies. If you already have an associate degree, you may only need to complete 60 credits related to marketing.
If you have no prior credits, you will likely spend four years in a full-time program to earn your degree. If you study part-time, it could take five to six years to get your degree, depending on the course load. A marketing degree is usually composed of lectures, courses, seminars, projects and exams and usually takes four years to finish. It can also be an option for those who studied a related field in undergraduate studies and are looking to pursue marketing later in their career.
To be admitted into a marketing degree program for undergraduate studies, you must have a high school diploma or equivalent and available transcripts, letters of recommendation, an entrance essay, test scores and pay an application fee.
