Marketing is a major function of business with a widely diverse field of job opportunities including:
- Online Marketing
- Direct Sales
- Social Media Marketing
- Physical Distribution
- Information Management
- Customer Service
- Public Relations
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. BUS 1050 and MKTG 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 Association of Collegiate 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.
