The Importance of Learning Skills:
Student success in college requires well developed learning skills (such as being able to work independently, participate in a team, be well-organized, develop good work habits, and show initiative). These skills are as important as prior academic achievement. While it is expected that applicants would have developed these skills through previous education and life experiences, Seneca offers support to assist students with further development of these important skills.
Marketing Management focuses on creating, building, communicating and delivering value to customers in innovative and creative ways. As a Seneca Marketing Management graduate you are prepared to begin a career path that leads to employment as an account executive, an assistant brand manager, customer service manager, sports and entertainment marketing specialist, marketing/sales/retail manager, media buyer, market researcher, or digital marketing manager.
During the first semester, you’ll have the opportunity to apply for admission to the co–op option. Co–op provides you with the opportunity to secure a paid work–term at the end of semester two. It also allows you to benefit from a combination of classroom learning and real–world experience. Please note that you will have a shared responsibility for securing employment opportunities and must meet co–op entrance requirements in order to be considered (see Student Advisor or Co–op Co–ordinator for details).
