Marketing Major with Track in Digital Marketing
A track in Digital Marketing prepares students to work in the most dynamic and rapidly changing area of business. With courses in Marketing Research and Analytics, Integrated Marketing Communication, Social Media Marketing, Digital Metrics, and Retailing and the Virtual Market Place, students graduate with an understanding of how customers’ preferences and opinions are measured, how data is collected and analyzed, and how marketing strategy is crafted to offer the right product for the right price in the right place to the most profitable customer. Digital Marketing students have opportunities to participate in applied learning experiences such as consulting with small businesses through ATU’s Small Business Technology and Development Center to create social media marketing plans, to conduct actual marketing research for local organizations, and to work with other students to promote on campus activities.
