Marketing Management Concentration

Marketing touches all of us every day of our lives and has become a key factor producing business successes. The Marketing concentration is designed to provide students with the concepts, tools and techniques needed for the analysis, planning, implementation and control of marketing programs. Through a combination of lectures, case discussions, simulations, hands-on projects, executive presentations and exercises, the concentration introduces students to various aspects of the marketing function in an organization.


This concentration is designed to provide sufficient training for entry-level line and staff jobs in marketing, and provide a broad enough perspective to prepare students for managerial careers.


In addition to the required core and concentration courses, students pursuing this concentration can take electives in special topic seminars in marketing, other marketing electives or independent study in marketing.
