Marketing touches all aspects of modern living — whether it’s internal marketing in organizations or product placement or developing brand loyalty. Corporations, not-for-profit organizations such as hospitals and schools and even government agencies all see aspects of marketing as important to their business structure. The bachelor’s degree in marketing provides students with practical and theoretical training so they may make strategic, effective and ethical decisions in their careers. Students will learn how to communicate effectively regardless of venue and set profitable and fair pricing.
The distinguishing feature of this marketing degree is its emphasis on quantitative analysis. The demand is growing for marketing professionals who are proficient in using the systems and analytical tools to analyze data in order to make better marketing decisions.
Graduates seek careers in product and brand management, sales and business development, market research, market analytics and advertising and promotions.
Licensed counselors provide students with strategies for mastering job interviews, writing professional cover letters and resumes and connecting with campus recruiters, among other services. Jindal School students are encouraged to hold internships. The school’s fully staffed Career Management Center, working in tandem with the University’s Career Center, helps students prepare for and seek internships, as well as postgraduation employment.
A 120-hour curriculum leads to a degree in marketing. All undergraduate degrees require a core of 42 hours. In the core courses, students learn theories and analytical techniques that can be applied to the functional areas of business, such as marketing.
To obtain a minor in marketing, students must complete the requirements for their major and take 12 hours of marketing core courses and 6 hours in marketing-guided electives.
