The marketing major at Jacksonville University is all about preparing you to make
marketing decisions. How much should a product cost? Who is your target audience?
How should you advertise the product? Answer these questions, and more, with your
professor and classmates in a marketing program focused on applied theory and strategies.
You might even find yourself in the Behavioral Lab in JU's Davis College of Business
building. Observe a focus group from behind mirrored glass, and learn what they really
think about your idea or product!
The lab is just one example of how the business college's facility and applied focus inspire exciting learning opportunities for JU students. Through assignments and class projects, you'll have an opportunity to test your knowledge and practice your marketing skills. You'll develop analytical skills, plus learn about ethics, business communication and leadership as part of the core business curriculum. A Marketing degree from JU is great preparation for careers in marketing, sales, advertising, public relations and more.
The courses in this major are designed to provide students with an understanding of professional practices and techniques applied in the major areas of marketing management.
A minor in Professional Sales is also available for all students interested in sales and
customer services career paths
The Marketing Major is intended to prepare students for entry-level positions in advertising, brand management, marketing research, retail management, and professional sales. Through careful planning, a student who elects a major in marketing may add a second major from a complementary area such as economics, management, international business, psychology, or other fields of interest.
