    MERRIMACK COLLEGE REVIEW

    It was close to home, offered greek life and on-campus housing. They were able to accept my transfer credits and I had friends who also attended the college. I liked the idea of a smaller campus with catholic roots.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I personally feel that the curriculum did provide me with the skills and knowledge that would be used in a marketing career. Most entry-level marketing jobs required skills and education.
