Department of Marketing

Marketing Major

The study of marketing concerns all activities related to the marketing and distribution of goods and services from producers to consumers. Areas of study include customer behavior, the development of product offerings to meet consumer needs, pricing policies, institutions and channels of distribution (including retailers and wholesalers), advertising, selling, sales promotion, research, and the management of marketing to provide for profitable and expanding businesses.

The marketing curriculum endeavors to provide the business community with broadly trained graduates who can approach problems with a clear understanding both of marketing and of the interrelationships between marketing and other functions of the firm. Students planning careers in marketing management, advertising, sales, sales management, retailing, wholesaling, marketing research, or distribution normally major in marketing and then may pursue within the curriculum a modest degree of specialization in the area of their vocational interest.
