Marketing is a process by which the products and services you desire are conveniently provided in the marketplace. The clothes you wear, the car you drive, the food you eat, and your leisure activities are all partially determined by marketing.
The Quinlan School of Business' BBA in Marketing degree program concentrates on the successful combination of strategic thinking and advanced technology. Through the use of real-world case studies, computer-based simulations, and hands-on projects, students learn to apply marketing principles and evaluate the results of their decisions. The synthesis of computer technology, multimedia resources, and thoughtful consumer analysis allows students to apply both the science and art of modern-day marketing to strategic problem situations.
