Marketing is a critical element in the success of modern business operations. The overall process of entering markets, creating value for customers, and developing profits is the fundamental challenge for the contemporary marketing manager. These marketing basics apply to governmental agencies, not-for-profit organizations, service organizations, and for-profit firms.
In the marketing major, students learn theory and gain practical experience by creating tactically enabled strategic marketing plans. Through projects, they learn to work independently and in teams to achieve organizational objectives. Marketing majors develop leadership and communication skills through classroom experiences and their work on real and simulated business challenges. Upon completing the program, students will gain proficiency in analyzing and understanding buyers, developing and delivering professional sales presentations, and designing and implementing marketing research projects. Students graduate with the ability to create and critically evaluate strategic marketing plans.
