Need to find marketing courses for banking which last 1-4 months near San Francisco, full day, 5-6 days per week.
Hello! Thanks for your question about 1-4 month marketing courses near San Francisco starting in December, January, February, or March. The short version is that classes with these exact criteria do not exist. Instead, we can offer a listing of classes that meet some (but not all) of the criteria and begin during the months specified. Below you will find a deep dive of my findings.
Extensive searching was done through academic websites, industry-specific professional development course listings, and databases. We were unable to find any classes that met all the criteria requested. Instead, we focused on marketing classes in San Francisco or online that were open to all individuals regardless of industry and offered meeting dates beginning in December 2017, January 2018, February 2018, or March 2018.
