Program Overview

Marketing lectures supported by experiential learning

At Sheridan, we believe the best way to learn is by doing. Put your new marketing skills to work through collaborative assignments, hands-on applications, case analyses and industry projects. When you graduate, you’ll have first-hand knowledge of various marketing concepts, including analysis, planning, selling, report writing, graphics, presentations, social media and promotion.

Build a foundation of general business knowledge

Marketers are the heart of business, working in tandem with many areas of their companies. You’ll learn about those areas during a foundational first year, studying topics such as accounting, finance, human resources and communications. Understanding your company’s strategies and challenges will help you write better marketing plans and recommend actions to keep your organization competitive.

Learn from experienced professors in small classes

Work closely with marketing experts who have decades of industry experience! Our business professors bring real-world perspective to the classroom. They’ll support your learning in classes that are typically capped at 40 students — an ideal number for fostering a dynamic and diverse environment.

Earn your Professional Sales Certificate

As a marketing student at Sheridan, you'll have the chance to earn a professional certificate from the Canadian Professional Sales Association (CPSA). If you complete five core courses that align with the CPSA Competency Framework, you'll be eligible to apply for the Professional Sales Certificate from the CPSA.

Get access to resources from the Canadian Marketing Association
