Master Degree

Master of Business Administration (Marketing)

Major corporate changes occur faster than ever and much of the challenge to align these changes is placed on the marketing organization. Companies are in a state of transition as they attempt to refocus their domestic market and prepare for the future domestic and global markets. As competition increases worldwide, corporations are becoming more focused on their operations as the time needed for product development and marketing is shortened. The quality courses that constitute the MBA in Marketing program prepare students for the challenges of the future.

One of the first courses to be taken is BUS 637, which prepares the student to conduct research for the case study required for the capstone course, MGT 785-Corporate Strategy Formulation and Implementation. In the capstone course, the student will be responsible for an in-depth analysis of an industry and a corporation. The analysis is based on the application of the theory and practical knowledge obtained in the courses taken in Marketing and the managerial core.
