Any student with a prior undergraduate degree is eligible to pursue the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Marketing Research. You must meet all pre-requisites for courses in the program except class standing and certification.  Waivers may be given for lower level, preparatory program courses completed as part of a previous undergraduate degree in a different field.

Marketing research is the gathering and analyzing of information used to assist organizations in decision making and has become a critical function for both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations of all sizes. The research industry is especially vibrant in the Greater Cincinnati area and career opportunities continue to grow. This program will  provide the academic foundation and skills needed for many entry-level positions in the marketing research industry.
