    As having a degree is mandatory to go into any domain, so will b.sc in computer science will work?
    Or if there is any degree for digital marketing please tell me.

    • Yeah, you may enter Digital Marketing domain after B.Sc. Yes, most of the courses are certification programs. You may check MBA in Digital Marketing course too!
