Marketing, BS

Students pursuing a concentration in marketing acquire a solid grounding in applying the basic disciplines (e.g., psychology, economics, statistics) essential for understanding consumer and organizational buying patterns and developing successful marketing strategies. They also gain practical experience applying these concepts and methods via half-semester mini-courses (e.g., new product development, advertising, retailing). Many students with a marketing concentration have gone on to work in brand management, advertising, sales, marketing research, consulting, and entrepreneurial ventures.
