Marketing Management

Marketing your management skills

Marketing means much more than attractive copy or catchy ads. It involves acquiring meaningful data to identify consumer needs and make decisions about product development, pricing, positioning, and other strategic functions.

If you’re interested in acquiring specific skills in such marketing activities as sales, research, buyer behavior, and international business, Maranatha’s Baptist Marketing Management degree will prepare you well. Research projects and multimedia class presentations will enhance your communication skills and creativity. You may also look over the details for our Digital Media Marketing major.
