Master the DNA of Business

The survival of virtually every enterprise – profit and nonprofit alike – depends upon effective marketing. Build a solid understanding of this discipline and you’ll go places, regardless of your chosen specialty or industry.

With your M.B.A. in Marketing, you’ll study how to generate product or service demand. Find profitable new customers and stop current ones from leaving. You’ll cover pricing strategy and profit maximization. And position yourself for stronger corporate or entrepreneurial success.

“My corporate experience has provided a solid background of successes and failures that add to the credibility of the marketing concepts covered in class.”

James Barry, D.B.A., Assistant Professor of Marketing
