Coursework, ranging from case studies to group projects, challenged me to view marketing from a real-world perspective. Small class sizes fostered engaging topics and conversations between student and professor that were relevant to the marketing industry.

"Being a psychology major I never thought I would be pursuing a business graduate degree, but a lot of what I learned in the MS Marketing program related to my psychology major especially when it came to understanding your target audience and brand management. The program’s coursework consists of 'real world' marketing projects and many classes have guest speakers from big companies that come in to speak on current trends, challenges, and practices. While the coursework did prepare me for a career in marketing, the faculty played a big role in helping me achieve my goals not just inside the classroom, but in my professional life as well. The faculty truly care about your goals and will help students in any way they can. This program gave me the skills I needed along with a supportive network that helped me start my career in marketing."
