Marketing is one of the most important business areas in the economy. Companies of all sizes must develop effective marketing strategies to reach the customers who will buy their products and services. To develop a successful marketing strategy an individual must understand how to develop new products, create effective promotional programs, price the products, and distribute them to customers in domestic and foreign markets. The goals of the marketing curriculum are to enable students to develop occupationally viable skills and to pursue careers in marketing.
