Back to School: A Look at the Nation’s Top Marketing Program

Posted by Kevin Kelleher on

For parents with children in grades K-12, back to school means lightening the wallet. The National Retail Federation is already predicting 2016 to be one of the most expensive back-to-school shopping seasons in the last 10 years (second only to 2012). The average family is expected to spend $673.57 on apparel, supplies, and electronics. This represents a seven percent increase from 2015, despite sluggish overall growth in the US economy.

Marketing graduates and those looking for a career change alike can find value for their many dollars. US News and World Report recently pointed to Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management as the nation’s top educational institution for aspiring marketers.
