Marketing Minor

Students interested in pursuing careers in areas such as brand management, professional selling, advertising, public relations, non-profit management, retail and social media may choose to pursue a minor in marketing to supplement their major course of study.

The marketing minor is available to students who have a major other than e-business or business administration. All requirements for the marketing minor must be completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher. Students electing the marketing minor are not formally admitted to nor graduate from the College of Business and Economics.
