“Sheridan taught me that marketing is an ever-changing discipline and it is important as a marketer to continuously learn and be flexible. I have definitely seen this play out in my current role and knowing that made me feel more prepared.”

Learning Outside the Classroom

The Sheridan marketing experience extends beyond the classroom. You'll have the opportunity to get involved in a variety of extracurricular activities and student-run organizations such as the Marketing Association, Business Council and Sheridan Student Union.

You can also join other business students in Enactus and Toastmasters clubs, and you could even represent the college at events such as the Ontario Colleges Marketing Competition (OCMC).
