Good point. Having studied in another country in the context of an exchange program will make your resume look very good. But spots are limited and competition is intense for the more popular destinations (HK, London, France, etc.).

How hard is Marketing in University? I'm asking because I'm in CEGEP right now and marketing truly is a passion and a strenght of mine. I did provincial contests back in high school for it and it has always interested me. What are the projects like and the classes like?

expand your horizons and look harder. there are tons of canadian schools scattered all over the world (two in beijing alone) that offer that exact kind of program.

you'll get paid tons, pay no canadian taxes (yay), get great experience, see the world, and did i mention get paid tons (and asian chicks)?

Truthfully, I haven't gone through enough major-specific courses to give you a sense of how hard it is. If it's truly a passion and strength of yours, then I really wouldn't worry about level of difficulty.

A lot of the classes are project-oriented, as you progress, and emphasize group work over individual work. At least, that's been my experience thus far. I hope that's what you wanted to hear, fits in with your competition background.

Don't remind me.

It was intentionally so, if I may add.

Thanks for the response, if that's the case I don't think I'll be complaining about what I'm getting into

The courses also vary significantly between the schools at the elective level, but most undergraduate marketing programs have something similar with respect to required courses: intro, consumer behavior, marketing research, marketing strategy.

In intro to marketing (however it's called at your school), you will probably learn to prepare a marketing plan and get tons of terminology to be able to "talk the talk". In consumer behavior, you would learn about principles of psychology useful to understand how consumers make decisions and how you can influence them. Projects in that class often involve creating your own experiment or study. In marketing research, you learn about data gathering, data analysis and interpretation. Most often the project involves a survey and the analysis. In marketing strategy, you learn about market behaviors and specific actions companies can take. Most often the course involves a computer simulation in which you compete against others to get the most profits or market share. In all these courses, you write reports and learn to present effectively in front of an audience. Further electives including advertising, pricing, social marketing, international marketing, PR, quantitative techniques, etc. No, marketing isn't only about sales and advertising

I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to carefully choose your professors too, if you have a choice when there are multiple sections. Do your homework (eh!) & get opinions from other students before you enroll, and don't forget to check ratemyprofessor.com. The quality of the professor has a huge impact on how interesting it is, how well you learn, and how easily you'll be able to use the concepts in practice. Especially for a major like marketing.
