Marketing Management

The exchange of goods and services is perhaps the oldest form of business known to humankind. Students completing a marketing degree program can expect classes in business concepts, economics, consumer behavior, advertising, sales, etc. Students complete projects that are applicable to the real world. Upon graduation, there are many career options. Marketing managers might directly liaison with store buyers to get them to carry their products, or they may be able to work in retail and sales management at a business selling products directly to customers.
