Marketing College®, taking place May 12-17, 2019 at the University of North Georgia campus in Dahlonega, Georgia, is an annual one-week continuing education program.

Marketing College® professors are working, experienced professionals from across the U.S. who bring real-world knowledge to the classroom.
