Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

Program Description:

The marketing program gives students a thorough grounding in the concepts and techniques needed to make marketing decisions in any organization. In addition to a survey course in principles of marketing, marketing majors study consumer behavior, international marketing, marketing analysis, and marketing strategy. They must also participate in major marketing projects at the senior level.

Marketing careers are far reaching, touching on all components of the marketing mix-product, promotion, pricing, and channels of distribution. In turn, each of these areas offers dozens of specific job opportunities. For example, the promotional area includes careers in advertising, public relations, personal selling, and merchandising. Moreover, a single area, such as advertising, can offer more than two dozen special career orientations. There are rewarding career opportunities in virtually all fields of endeavor. Other major employment tracks include retailing, marketing research, product management, personal selling, and strategic planning.

Graduation Planning Strategy


The Graduation Planning Strategy (GPS) has been created to illustrate one option to complete degree requirements within a particular time frame. Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor to adjust this plan based on credit already earned, individual needs or curricular changes that may not be reflected in this year’s catalog.

Business Analytics Concentration


This concentration will provide content knowledge in the field of Business analytics to students enrolled in the Marketing Major.  This is a new discipline in business which encourages organizations to examine their existing stores of data to discern possible trends or patterns which have been hidden heretofore.  Moreover, today’s business analytics extends the work historically relegated to the area of data warehousing and data mining by including current–even up to the moment–data in the analysis.
