A Popular Choice
Marketing is one of the most popular majors for Kelley undergraduates. You’ll graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Business degree, and within marketing, you can concentrate in specific areas of study related to your career choices. We also offer a marketing minor for non–business students.
Important Concepts, Essential Skills
Taught by world-class faculty members who are dedicated teachers and expert researchers, our curriculum is both cutting edge and practical, teaching you important marketing concepts and developing your communication, creative, and analytical skills. Three skill classes will be the foundation of your marketing education:
- M342 Analysis and Display of Marketing Data
- M343 Database Marketing
- M344 Creativity and Communication
You’ll also take courses in Marketing Research (M303) and Marketing Strategy (M450), as well as courses you choose based on your career interests. Along with the Kelley School’s innovative I-Core program, our curriculum will prepare you to contribute immediately in the workplace.
Some opportunities are built into our classes; in Creativity and Communication, for example, you can create a marketing campaign for an actual client. Outside of class, you can intern for a prestigious company, join one of our student organizations, study consumer behavior in our Customer Interface Virtual Laboratory, or compete in case competitions.
A concentration in marketing will prepare you to succeed in a variety of careers, including brand management, sales consulting, sales management, corporate retail, advertising, and marketing research. Our students are recruited by some of the nation’s best employers—such as Procter & Gamble, Eli Lilly and Company, Toyota, Kraft Foods, and IBM—and Business Week gave the Kelley School an A+ for undergraduate job placement in 2007.
