Marketing serves critical economic functions; companies of all sizes must develop effective marketing strategies to reach customers, which require an understanding of how to innovate and develop new products, create effective promotional programs, price products and services, and distribute these in a global marketplace. The marketing curriculum at Fox provides students with occupationally-viable skills and professional development opportunities.
Contemporary marketing focuses on performance metrics and the curriculum seeks to immerse students in the quantitative methods and the behavioral sciences necessary to address marketing problems. Experiential and active learning are common in the upper division curriculum and projects are often offered in cooperation with business and government organizations.
Students are encouraged to choose specific course sequences within the curriculum which offer more in-depth coverage of topics and provide job-ready skills; these sequences include: Supply Chain Management, Digital Marketing, Consumer Insights, Sales Force Effectiveness and Retailing. Information on these industry-focused sequences can be found on our department's web site.
Marketing majors are encouraged to become involved in the American Marketing Association (AMA), a student professional organization that offers students the opportunity to meet business leaders in marketing. The AMA hosts regular meetings and career development programs. The AMA is open to all majors. For more information, please see the AMA web site at www.temple-ama.org/ or contact Professor Craig Atwater at email@example.com (215-204-5220).
