Be a Leader and an Achiever

Marketing Management Minor

Management and marketing skills are applicable in virtually all types of organizations. Salisbury University’s marketing management minor provides a constructive overview of the two disciplines. Management students learn to set goals, formulate strategies, motivate people and monitor performance. Marketing courses help prepare students to work in areas such as advertising, sales, market research, product planning, purchasing, transportation and public relations.
