ivilus : I'm in grade 12 (in Ontario- Canada) and I've been trying to find something to major in for college/university.

I am prepping for my SAT's incase the chance to attend an American college/university emerges.
But my counsellors at school are very unhelpful, so unhelpful to the point that I am begging people on Yahoo Answers to help direct me

What is the standard name for a major in advertising (communications? public relations?)
What pre-requisites/courses should I take and admit to colleges/universities when applying to a school?
What are some schools well known for their programs that major in advertising?

I plan to become a creative director or brand manager in the future hopefully and end up working with some major companies. I'd really like a chance to chase my dreams and I think this is really what I want (the highlight is that I don't have to take math, which I miserably fail in)

I feel like it's so hard to find help and the proper guidance to embark on my career path.



Please help me with whatever you know
This is a serious question so snotty obnoxious unnecessary remarks will be reported

Thanks
Liz

sharonben : Scenario: The online social networking industry is growing rapidly with a variety of both personal and business oriented applications emerging tapping into the global marketplace. There are also many niche applications popping up, such as those targeting a specific geographic region, industry, or customer group.

He explains that the company is extremely excited about the possibility of entering the industry and taking advantage of the growing demand for social networking. Your company has extensive technical experience and the ability to build most any feature into the website but they are unsure of what strategic direction to take when marketing the new website. For instance, should your company focus on a specific niche or keep the website more mainstream. Additionally, they would like to know the features, pricing, and marking strategy that would best support the new website. Given your background and management expertise, your company, Funder Mifflin Inc. would like to offer you a bonus for helping the company implement a strategic plan to get the new website off the ground. The Vice President explains that in order to receive the bonus, you will have to present a plan of action to the Board of Directors in order to obtain funding to launch the new product.

sotojewimi : I have a bachelors degree in marketing and have mostly a sales background as far as work experience, because that seems to be the only job I can get. I would like to know what experience I need to get into advertising, because having a sales background and just a marketing degree doesn't seem enough.

advagemyham : Sales is a good start. anything on creative side (artwork/copywriritng) is good. What do you want to do in an ad agency? Cos its different job spec being a creative director to being an account manager, so consider what you really want to do then try and match your experience to those skills you need - lot of skills are transfearable. A lot of people say you can't transfer from the client side to the agency side but it can be done so consider starting on the client side (more opportunities) and then moving into the agency side.

HeteHailm : You can, You need someone, an adult, to accompany you to the Security and then airport staff to take you to your gate.
You need a notarized letter of permission signed by both parents if they are on your birth certificate, mainly to leave Mexico.
Last but not least you need an adult waiting to collect you at your destination.
