Our Marketing Program Speaks for Itself

The marketing program at Wingate University involves you in the hands-on experiential learning, problem-solving, and real-life situations from actual companies that need real-time responses.

Marketing majors have the opportunity to intern with local for-profit and nonprofit organizations where you can manage social media accounts, create marketing campaigns or digital marketing crusades. 

With Wingate's special combination of experienced faculty, classroom engagement, project work, case studies and hands-on applications, you will be prepared to help your company move forward successfully.
