Bachelor of Science in Business (Advertising)

The advertising curriculum provides an educational foundation for those preparing for careers in which advertising may play a major role. Such careers include work in the management of advertising; advertising sales; product management with those firms where strong emphasis is placed on advertising; or specialized areas of copy, layout, design, or production.

Employment in these careers may be with advertising departments of manufacturing, distributing, or retailing firms; with media, including television, radio, newspapers, magazines, direct mail, or the Internet; with advertising agencies; or with companies dealing in specialized aspects of advertising and sales promotion.

Because the advertising function in a business firm constitutes part of a total marketing program, the advertising curriculum provides, first of all, a base of general business and marketing studies. The capstone of this degree program is a modest degree of specialization in advertising courses.


Academic Advising

The mission of the academic advising program in the Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics is to promote academic success, student satisfaction, and increased retention by providing students with advisors to help students make educational, career, and personal decisions.

The policy on advising requires that students meet with their academic advisors at least once each year, and freshmen and sophomores are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to each semester’s enrollment. Advising holds are placed on all freshmen and sophomores prior to advance registration and are released following advising appointments. To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see One.IU.
