Success Story

Certificate in Marketing

“As a self-made professional, I found the FAU executive marketing program to be ideal. It helped me to refocus my practical knowledge in an educational setting, and added some fresh perspective on more than a few topics. It was the perfect vehicle for me to gain the credibility I desired to match the expertise I have accrued over the past 15 years.”
