Marketing incorporates a variety of business-related activities. Individual occupations may be specialized, but decisions in any one of them require a broad understanding of the marketing process, and an ability to analyze the factors that influence it.

We designed the major in marketing as a comprehensive study of all these activities. It provides the common background required for any marketing career and an opportunity for specialization, whatever your interests might be.

Marketing students get the skills they need for careers in:

  • marketing management
  • promotional strategy
  • personal selling and sales management
  • retail merchandising and management
  • marketing research

A large percentage of BBA marketing graduates from UT found employment as sales representatives, usually for large consumer products or industrial firms, or in retailing as assistant buyers or department managers.
