Marketing is the lifeline that connects organizations with consumers. The discipline covers a broad range of areas from knowledge of human behavior and market research to strategy and creative expression to drive a desired outcome. As a Marketing minor will supplement a business degree by providing you more depth in areas where marketing plays a significant role in the achievement of an organization’s goals. A large percentage of business professionals, regardless of their undergraduate major, will either rotate through marketing positions during their careers or spend most, if not all, of their careers in marketing.
