Marketing Degree

Marketing Undergraduate Degree

Marketing is the link to an organization's customer - the firm's source of revenue. Its focus is on answering these questions:

  • Who is the organization's customer?
  • What does she need and want?
  • How can the organization fulfill those needs and wants, delivering satisfaction to the customer profitably?

In choosing to major in marketing, you will gain a robust understanding of the field through classes such as Consumer Behavior, Personal Selling and Sales Management, Marketing Research, and Advanced Marketing Management. You'll also gain an integrative understanding of how different disciplines of the business function together through the Kelce Core.
