Career Outlook

Big data serves as the conduit through which marketers can establish closer proximity to consumers. By amassing and analyzing swathes of data, marketers are afforded a deeper look into customers’ patterns—knowledge that was previously out of reach. In the last few years, 90% of all the data that currently exists was created. The big data explosion has led to new approaches to marketing research and strategy. Diverse positions abound within this rapidly evolving field, especially in digital marketing, e-commerce, and multichannel marketing.
