Marketing Applications (5 Days)

This blog post is part of a series where I chronicle my advancement through WGU’s Bachelor of Science, Business – Information Technology Management degree. It includes detailed reports on my study methods and strategies as well as occasional tips and tricks.

This course was simple and straight forward. My biggest piece of advice for this course is to download the two ~1 hr-long overview videos. Watch them both through once, then download the assignment template and get started. I recommend watching the overview videos as you’re working through the assignment. That’s what I did, and I found it to be a great help.

I took 5 days to complete this course, but it could probably have been done quicker (this course overlapped with Christmas and with a job change, so there was a lot going on!).
