    Description

    The importance of marketing for organizations today cannot be underestimated. The best product in the world can fail if it is not marketed appropriately. Marketing is a very broad degree program covering diverse topics such as personal selling, integrated marketing communication, advertising, sales promotion, the psychology of consumer behavior, marketing research, retail marketing, marketing ethics, logistics, internet marketing, and strategic marketing. Organizations need individuals who can identify consumer needs and configure appropriate solutions, and a marketing degree provides graduates with such skills.

    A degree in marketing prepares graduates for a variety of careers in marketing, including brand management, sales management, personal selling, account executives, advertising, marketing research, and retailing.

    We teach marketing hands-on, which means students actually DO the marketing. Through experiential learning projects, students work with regional businesses to conduct exploratory marketing studies. These projects range from strategic marketing plans addressing the long-term focus of an organization to consumer analysis reports investigating the behavioral trends customers exhibit.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
