In an era of global, digitized, interactive business environments, Marketing offers one of the best career opportunities for today’s business students. Marketing is a broad field which includes activities related to selecting, designing, packaging, pricing, advertising/promoting, selling, distributing, and servicing a product in the domestic and/or international marketplace. It is the driving force in most businesses.

The focus of the degree is on the application of current theories and concepts in effectively marketing goods and services to define target customers from a domestic and global perspective. Marketing is critically examined from the perspective of the consumer/client, economy, technology, legal/political issues, and ethical/social responsibility. Marketing classes integrate theory and practical applications while applying related business knowledge of information technology, accounting, economics and management principles.

Marketing personnel are employed in retail, industrial and commercial firms, schools and hospitals, for profit and non-profit, both locally and internationally. Marketing offers something for every business student-a desk job as a market research analyst, or travel and excitement with the public as a salesperson, retailer, or public relations person.

The Marketing degree provides students with a solid foundation in preparation for employment or it offers students a strong educational base which will transfer to many four-year colleges. The Marketing program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) which supports transfers to many four year institutions.
