Simply put, non-credit programs are run by the University of Missouri- St. Louis but are available to anyone in the professional community. You do NOT need to be admitted to the University of Missouri to attend. To qualify for these courses, you must have a valid Associates degree OR three years of full-time work experience. Prior marketing experience, although beneficial, is not required. Students have the option of taking one or all of our digital courses! All courses are held with the busy professional in mind, typically Friday/Saturday’s and some weeknights. There is no commitment to obtain the full certification. If one chooses to pursue the entire certification, they receive a fully certified certificate signed by the Dean of UMSL Business and program founder Dr. Perry D. Drake to frame and showcase their skills.
Students come from a wide range of industries, either to learn new skills or enhance their understanding of today’s marketing tactics. As the most robust digital certification program in our region, it’s not uncommon for students to travel into St. Louis for these courses. Students from Iowa, Kansas, Nashville, Kentucky, and Illinois are not uncommon in addition to the greater St. Louis area.
