B.S. in Marketing

Innovate, create, and communicate—bring new ideas to the marketplace.

Marketing executives know the “science” involved in crafting successful marketing plans and campaigns. Before a promotional effort is launched, marketing teams spend hours on market and media research, strategic and tactical planning, understanding consumer behaviors, budgeting, predictive modeling, statistical analysis, ensuring compliance with business laws, and overall project management.

Rivier’s B.S. in Marketing prepares students to be leaders and contributing members of successful marketing teams. The curriculum provides a combination of theory, skills development, and practical application to real-life business challenges.

Elective courses allow students to focus on their particular areas of interest. And students apply classroom learning in the field with a required internship or capstone seminar, building their resumes and professional networks ahead of graduation.
