The Marketing Associate Degree Program can help students learn to develop new ad campaigns, oversee product development, and monitor trends for new products and services. Here are a few qualities that talented marketers have in common:
- Creative: To work in advertising and marketing you often need to think outside the box.
- Persistent: You need to work hard and stand by your projects and ideas to get others on board.
- Self-motivated: Take charge of projects and always offer opinions and advice to help others.
- Dependable: Others can rely on you to solve the problem at hand.
After earning my degree I received a pay increase and a promotion to a supervisor position. The instructors are superb, helpful, and are there with you every step of the way. Also, the student services representatives are courteous and understanding; they are there to answer any questions you may have. After each assignment I completed, the staff of Penn Foster always had encouraging statements that helped me to stay on course. Congrats to Penn Foster College on being the best and bringing the best out of me.

Having a degree will increase my chances of being put at the top of the promotion list. I suggest Penn Foster programs all of the time to my coworkers. I am in the military, and Penn Foster is a very military-friendly school. I got all of my materials shipped to me while I was overseas for deployment.

How do students take the tests in the Penn Foster College Marketing Associate Degree Program?
Penn Foster Associate Degree Programs often have proctored exams at the end of each semester with a proctor present during the exam. These cannot be taken online. Other course exams are different depending on the subject. Many exams can be taken online. Some courses are graded based on projects, not exams. In most cases these projects are completed on your computer and then uploaded to the school's website.
Will my Penn Foster College credits transfer to other schools?
Penn Foster College credits have been accepted for transfer into many colleges across the country. Students should check with a specific college to see if they accept our credits, as credit transfer can vary depending on the school. Also, the American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for many Penn Foster College courses. No form of accreditation guarantees that any learning institution will accept credits from any school as transfer credits. For more information on transferring credits, click here.
