About The Field

The Marketing field investigates the fundamental activities, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large. Its relevance speaks to both developed and emerging markets and spans across the private, public, and non-profit sectors. In addition to careers in product and brand management, communication and public relations, and the growing area of social media, the Marketing field is pertinent for students interested in general management careers, entrepreneurial management, as well as management consulting. The Marketing field helps students acquire the tools, concepts, and grounding in the basic disciplines (e.g., psychology, economics, statistics) essential to understanding consumer and organizational behaviors and to developing successful marketing strategies.

Students should refer to the Field of Study Guide for definitive field requirements in a given academic year.
