Finding the Best Specialized Sales, Merchandising & Marketing School for You

Specialized Sales, Merchandising & Marketing is the #17 most popular major in the country with 5,357 degrees and certificates awarded in 2019-2020.

It's not easy to decide which business program to enroll in when you have so many options available. You can choose a traditional brick and mortar school, or with the growth of online education, you can attend a school half-way across the country without even leaving your house. Also there are many trade schools that offer short-term programs that open up more career options.

To assist you in seeing some of the education options that are available to you, Business Degree Central has created its Best Value Specialized Sales Schools ranking. Our analysis looked at 143 schools in the United States to see which programs offered the best value experiences for specialized marketing students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

This ranking is not just a list of inexpensive schools. We also consider each school's quality, since we believe a low-quality school may not be a 'bargain' at any price. Specifically, our score for quality is discounted by the published tuition and fees charged by the given college. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The more quality your dollar buys, the better the value.

For nationwide and regional rankings, we use out-of-state tuition and fees in our calculations. For statewide rankings, we use average in-state tuition and fees.
