like many considering Marketing, my reason is that I grew up on commercialism and TV. I love commercials, I love shops, I would love to find out how they brand themselves and make so many people love them.
My question is: is Marketing seen (or maybe actually is) a fluffy major? Othe business majors like Actuarial Science, Accounting and Finance are undoubtedly more 'solid' and technical.
To exaggerate my point, Marketing seems like it is fluffy and easy enough to be picked up from Donald Trump books. Like (purely hypothetical), tidbit: people love commercial methods that compliment the viewer's intelligence!
