Get Hands-On Marketing Experience While You Earn Your Degree

St. Catherine University credentials carry weight in the working world — employers hire Katies because we’re well-rounded with deep entrepreneurial spirit.

Through St. Kate's online marketing degree program, you'll gain a solid grounding in core business knowledge, and also focus on consumer behavior, market segmentation and analysis, integrated marketing communication, digital and social media marketing trends, branding and product development, advertising, pricing strategies, marketing research, and marketing ethics.

Your hands-on experience will include participation in real-world projects with partnering organizations. You’ll benefit from one-on-one time with faculty, who will introduce you to a wide range of careers in marketing and connect you with internships and employment opportunities.

College for Adults students have a wealth of experience, including work, community and volunteer activities. We value the learning you've acquired outside of the classroom, and offer ways to turn those experiences into credit you can use toward your bachelor’s degree, saving you time and money. Do you have previous experience related to the field of marketing? Eligible students will work with faculty advisors to assemble a portfolio, documenting course learning outcomes that were met on the job or through other experiences. If approved, up to 12 credits may be applied toward the bachelor’s degree, with a $50 assessment fee per credit.

While pursuing your bachelor's degree, you may be eligible to take up to two courses in St. Kate's MBA or Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership. Courses will count toward both your bachelor's degree and master's degree.
