The MBA in marketing allows students to select courses from a broad range of marketing areas (advertising, international marketing, Internet marketing) and is designed to prepare students for careers in marketing. The Department of Marketing and International Business offers a wide array of courses, and students may tailor the major to reflect their individual needs and interests. The elective courses listed below are subject to change and typically include additional choices.  Students are encouraged to meet with a faculty advisor to help them in their selection of courses.

For students who wish an even greater degree of specialization in marketing, an MS degree is also offered by the department. This is a 30-credit program such that all courses are taken in the Department of Marketing and International Business. (For a discussion of the MS.)
