Would you like to be able to get people excited about the products, services, or ideas that you want to promote? If you answer yes to the above questions, you have understand the importance of marketing and innovation. You understand that the marketers and innovators are those who create new products, services, and ideas, get people excited about them, and thus help to fulfill customer needs from having something healthy to eat, through outfitting their homes, to giving to a cause and finding a partner online. Students who enroll in this program are from all around the world, typically in their 20s, and have the ability to lead high level conversations in English language.
