Coles College of Business
Department of Marketing & Professional Sales
Marketing affects us every day of our lives. A field devoted to promoting an organization’s goods and services to potential customers, marketing helps deliver to average consumers a standard of living that would have been inconceivable to previous generations.
Majoring in marketing can lead to a personally satisfying and financially rewarding career in the fields of marketing, sales, or sales management. The marketing curriculum merges marketing theory with real-world practice to prepare students for working with either for-profit or nonprofit organizations. Students may choose a general program of study or one of the specialized marketing tracks including marketing communications, retail management, or professional selling.
