Let's Get Down To Business with Marketing

Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) LogoMarketing is everywhere. It grabs our attention, influences our preferences, makes us fall in love with brands, and ultimately entices us to spend money. Marketing is an essential business process that manages the flow of products from the point of conception to the point of consumption. Marketers dig into the minds of consumers using psychological and behavioral techniques. Students in the marketing major will learn skills and strategies to help them identify the customers' needs and wants. Students will learn to apply current digital technologies to marketing planning. Students will also study the challenges facing marketers in the global business environment and develop the critical thinking skills needed to be successful.

Marketing is a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree.
