Bachelor of Science in Marketing
Marketing touches all aspects of modern living — whether it’s internal marketing in organizations or selling to sophisticated clients. The distinguishing feature of this degree is its emphasis on quantitative analysis. The demand is growing for marketing professionals who are proficient in using analytical tools and programs to analyze data to make better marketing decisions.
