Marketing Minor

Only offered during the summer!

The 18-unit program is designed so that all admitted students will be registered for the courses simultaneously and be able to complete the program in one summer. The Marketing Minor is only offered during the summer and cannot be completed during the regular academic year or online.

The Marketing Department is consistently ranked highly when compared to marketing departments at peer business schools. The department is committed to offering a quality learning experience for non-business students wanting to add marketing education to their major course of study.


Program Benefits

Guaranteed Registration: You can be pre-registered in all required courses so that completion of the minor is not dependent on gaining admission to the needed classes that might be closed.

Fast Completion: The entire minor can be completed in one summer of full-time attendance (the presession classes can be taken during the fall or spring semesters if you can register in those two classes using regular registration).

Cohort System: You will take the core classes with the same cohort of students which is the typical method for MBA programs. Working with the same students allows team learning and social networking.

Admission: Admission to the program is competitive, applications are accepted during the fall and Spring semesters. Fall and spring admission decisions will be made on a rolling basis (approximately monthly) until all seats are filled in the spring.

Commitments: The Marketing Department will make it possible for admitted students to complete the Marketing Minor in one summer. As a marketing minor student, you must commit to registering for the entire block of courses in one summer. Spreading courses over two summers is not allowed because a new cohort will be entering then.
