Helping brands and organizations grow and innovate takes a specialized skill set grounded in communications. In an effort to help busy professionals obtain the skill sets they need to succeed, Husson University Online announced today that they have launched two new marketing/communications degrees.

“According to Investopedia, marketing refers to the activities a company or organization ‘undertakes to promote the buying or selling of a product or service. Marketing includes advertising, selling, and delivering products to consumers or other businesses,” said Dr. David Rogers, the director of online and distance education at Husson University Online. “To gain expertise in this area, professionals need to have an in-depth understanding of digital marketing, social media, advertising and public relations. Our online Bachelor of Science in marketing degree can provide students with the knowledge they need to be successful in this career field.”
