The curriculum matrix for the degree program may be found here. The curriculum matrix is the alignment of courses (curriculum) with the desired goals and student learning outcomes of the program. It shows what is taught and how these outcomes are achieved through the completion of the degree program.

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) promotion, (2) professional selling, (3) entertainment, (4) marketing research, and (5) general marketing. Because the university offers a broad array of specializations, the general marketing emphasis should only be selected when other options become unavailable.
