Career opportunities in marketing include business-to-business and industrial sales, search engine marketing account management and optimization, retail management and buying, distribution management, event marketing and other activities, to name just a few.  Graduates of the program are qualified to engage in any of the wide-ranging marketing activities now being pursued by leading regional and national companies.

Students majoring in Marketing follow a 120 hour curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.  As a complement to their major in Marketing, students may elect to pursue an optional concentration in Advertising Design or International Business.   With proper planning, students can also pursue a double-major with management, accounting, or finance.

Coursework is project-oriented and emphasizes how marketing decisions facilitate business-to-business and business-to-consumer transactions.  Students often have the opportunity to work with local small businesses and thus gain real-world experience.  Students who successfully complete their marketing degree will be prepared to engage in strategic or tactical decisions related to key marketing activities, such as:

  • gathering and interpreting market information
  • targeting appropriate markets
  • designing and modifying products
  • pricing and distributing goods
  • selling in a business-to-business setting
  • planning, creating, or scheduling an array of marketing communications activities.
