Why Marketing at Champlain?

The combination of four years of intensive business education and extensive hands on experience will place you in competitive demand upon graduation.

Our Marketing faculty have built an extensive list of exciting local internship sites. Each site has been visited, and each organization has a strong working relationship with the College. You can also complete internships abroad while spending a semester at our campuses in Dublin or Montreal, and summer internships can happen anywhere in the country.

Your Marketing career adviser will work with you on your resume and help you target the internship sites to best match your goals. The faculty mentoring you receive throughout your internship will give you the confidence and credentials to do other marketing internships in your junior and senior years, as many other Champlain Marketing majors have done.


In addition to the extensive career-focused programs and support offered College-wide, each of Champlain's career-focused majors features skill-building hands-on learning opportunities and other major-specific programs that help our students create highly marketable resumes. Highlights include:

  • All members of the Marketing faculty are professionals in their field, which is an essential factor in our students getting the most cutting-edge education in the field possible.
  • In a variety of classes, Marketing students get to work with real-life clients: businesses, non-profits and individuals.
  • Students complete projects for people in their field who then use their work on a professional level. It's real experience that students include on their resumes.
  • Marketing students get opportunities to obtain many internships with local companies over the course of their program, which gives them stellar resume listings and recommendations.
  • Job placements for Marketing graduates at Champlain are impressive; in fact, 100% of the Marketing graduates from the Class of 2017 are employed within six months of graduation, and of them, 95% are in positions relevant to their career goals.
