  • 02 What degree is conferred upon completion of this program?
    Graduates are awarded the Associate of Applied Science in Marketing and Sales degree.
  • 03 Is an Associate Degree a postsecondary degree?
    Yes.
    An Associate Degree is a postsecondary degree that is shorter than a Bachelor’s degree. In the case of the Associate of Applied Science, the objective is to graduate someone specialized in a certain area so that the graduate can find a professional occupation quickly.
  • 04 What is an Associate of Applied Science (AAS)?
    An Associate degree is an American postsecondary degree that usually takes 2 years of study to be completed and prepares graduates to specialized careers and entry level positions focusing on the needs of the market.
    It’s a degree that, in terms of workload, represents half of a Bachelor’s degree.
    If you are looking for higher academic degrees, Ambra offers some options as the Bachelor of Business Administration and the Master of Business Administração.
  • 05 Why does this Associate program take 2.5 years for completion instead of 2 years?
    Usually, Ambra students are adult professionals and not traditional students. Because our students, by default, work and have families to take care, we recommend the completion of this program in 2.5 years.
    But each student is free to complete the associate degree taking from 2 years up to 5 years after the date of enrollment.
  • 06 What diploma is required for enrollment?
    Candidates to the AAS in Marketing and Sales must have completed at least the high school or equivalent.
  • 07 My high school diploma is not American. Do I have to evaluate it for equivalence?
    If your high school diploma is from the US, Brazil, Canada, Australia, New Zeeland, Portugal, Angola, Mozambique, or England, you might not need to have it evaluated depending on the awarding institution (at the discretion of Ambra when checking your documentation). For diplomas from other countries, you will need an evaluation report from any member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services - NACES. In this case, you should contact them directly and check what would be the procedure and cost for evaluating your credentials.
  • 08 Does an Associate degree meet the requirements for enrolling in a Master program?
    No.
    The Associate degree comes from a program that is quicker, shorter, and more focused than a Bachelor’s degree. Such characteristics prevent graduates holding only an Associate degree to enroll in a Master program. An alternative is to earn an Associate degree and continue to study, at the same institution, to earn a Bachelor’s degree as well. In the USA, students of graduate studies (master’s or graduate certificates) must hold a Bachelor’s degree.
