Marketing continues to increase in importance in the world of commerce and industry and many managers are selected from successful marketing personnel. Students cultivate fresh viewpoints and leadership skills through an open exchange of ideas and experiences while participating in team activities and problem-solving situations.
General education and elective courses provide training in effective oral and written communication and human relations skills. MKTG 1960, 1010, and 1050 are taught using group and team activities in the learning process to develop the students' interactive skills to build human values and ethics.
Note: Marketing Management majors must complete each of the required marketing classes with a C+ grade (2.4 GPA) or higher. Students receiving lower than 2.4 in any Marketing course cannot proceed without retaking the course and achieving the minimum grade or by approval from the instructor.
The School of Business is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). This accreditation means that the Marketing Management Department has met the high national standards established for associate degree-granting business programs.
Students who need to take preparatory classes to meet requirements of first semester courses should plan on extra time to complete a certificate or degree. Classes designed to assist students in reaching the skill level necessary to enter the certificate and degree programs are MATH 0950 and CIS 1020 to build computer keyboarding skills. Classes in the preparatory skills may be waived as students demonstrate equivalent skills. Prerequisites: It is the student's responsibility to examine each course description for details of prerequisite classes. Those prerequisites must be satisfied before the designated class may be taken.
