About Our Program

Marketing majors learn and apply skills that are critical to success in the marketplace. You learn material via coursework and then apply that knowledge in hands-on experiences, often working with client firms.

You will have the opportunity to engage in customer segmentation studies, develop a strategic marketing plan, design advertising or promotional plans for firms, and even close some sales if your plans are successful.

Internships are offered in marketing and sales. Students typically secure their own internship. They earn course credit while learning real-world skills, including B2B selling, online marketing and brand development. Students have completed semester-long internships at Gartner, Charles Aris, Fastenal, SFW, VF Corporation, and Volvo Trucks North America.

  • Over 83% of our marketing students got a job BEFORE graduation.
  • Recent graduates are working at Amazon, Oracle, American Airlines, Walt Disney World, WXII-12 News, Hyatt Hotels, and Marriott Hotels & Resorts.
