Many people think that marketing means “selling” or “advertising.” These activities are part of marketing, but much more is involved. Marketers are involved in deciding:

  • What product is to be created or manufactured;
  • How to geographically distribute the product;
  • How to price the product;
  • What promotions to use.

Objectives of the Marketing program:

  • Prepare students for professional careers in both small and large businesses.
  • Provide students with the educational background to pursue graduate or professional programs.
