Marketing & Communication, BS

Marketing professionals must understand the communication process and the most effective methods of conveying information, regardless of whether they intend to focus on advertising, the development of web-based initiatives, or the conduct of market research. Students in this dual concentration will augment their understanding of the core concepts taught in their marketing courses and be better prepared for employment or graduate study. The dual concentration in marketing and communication allows Wharton students concentrating in marketing to take four courses in the Annenberg School of Communication and have this cluster of courses recognized on their transcript as a second concentration.

Students who wish to pursue a second concentration in communication must first declare a primary concentration in marketing. The concentration in communication may not be used as a primary or sole concentration.
