Students working towards a specialization in Marketing review a set of strategies that help a business or organization understand and address the needs of its target market. These strategies, when used properly, help create and sustain value, improve customer satisfaction and loyalty, fend off competition, and maximize long-term profitability.

The Marketing specialization equips students with valuable knowledge and skills for a marketing career while also creating a broader understanding of business.
