COMMENTS: From Ted Schacter, Assistant Chair, AMC Department
"AMC is general marketing program. You learn the core tools of communication, and can then apply that knowledge to almost any industry in any geographic location. Because our students aren't tied to one sector, they have the most extensive breadth of career opportunities upon graduation."
