When an enterprise suffers from a loss of customers and lagging sales, a competent marketing professional can often make a difference. Marketing means much more than attractive copy or catchy ads. It involves acquiring meaningful data to identify consumer needs and make decisions about product development, pricing, positioning, and other strategic functions.
If you’re interested in acquiring specific skills in such marketing activities as sales, research, buyer behavior, and international business, the Marketing Management major will prepare you well. Research projects and multimedia class presentations will enhance your communication skills and creativity. You’ll receive strong spiritual and academic instruction to develop the character and skills necessary for effective service in the marketing field. Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to join the working world or to get more specialized training through graduate school.
This is the suggested class list for the Marketing Management major. You may also look over the details for our Digital Media Marketing major.
