Offered by: College of Business Administration, International Business and Marketing Department
The Marketing Management Subplan is designed to give students an understanding of the factors both within the firm and in the external environment that affect the development and implementation of plans to serve the firm's markets and to attain the firm's economic goals. Emphasis is placed on determining market needs and decision-making concerning the product, pricing, promotion and distribution strategies required to meet those market needs.
Through proper selection of courses, with advisor approval, each student will develop and complete an individualized program of courses that will prepare him or her for a specialized career field within the field of marketing management. The specialized fields from which the student will choose are: (1) advertising/promotion, (2) international marketing, (3) marketing research, (4) general marketing, (5) retail management, (6) interactive management, (7) product/brand management, (8) entertainment/sports marketing, (9) e-commerce, and (10) professional selling/sales management. Because the university offers a broad array of specializations, the general marketing emphasis should only be selected when other options become unavailable.
