Minor in


Marketing 101: “Find out what people want, and give it to them.” — Prof. Terry Scout

Marketing is a creative problem-solving endeavor that rigorously identifies people’s needs and desires and develops products and services to meet them. 

Marketing includes market research and data analysis of consumer behavior and mindset; development of new products and services; cultivation of relationships with consumers and target markets; and creation and maintenance of brand identities as a durable source of trust and credible information in complex environments.

Drawing from Business Management, Art, and other disciplines, the Marketing Minor draws on liberal-arts skills such as research, analysis, creativity, communication, and the application of ethical principles to marketing work. The minor is open to students in all majors.
