The Marketing minor is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to contribute to the marketing function of an organization. The coursework exposes students to a wide variety of topics critical to the strategic decision-making of the business. Coverage areas include concepts related to product and service development, promotional efforts, distribution, pricing strategy, and service quality. Students are required to complete the Introduction to Business course in order to provide a broad overview of the functional areas of business. The required Principles of Marketing course lays the foundation for other marketing courses to present a more specialized focus. Beyond the two course requirements, students are permitted the opportunity to tailor their minor program to their interests by selecting from a range of marketing electives.
