The Marketing Department at Kent State University offers three major programs of study: Managerial Marketing, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship. If you are not sure on which major you are interested in, click here to take the quiz and find out!
This program is designed to give students hands-on experiences in and outside the classroom that prepare them for a career in marketing, especially in jobs where independent decision-making and analytical skills are highly sought. The program provides depth of knowledge and critical skills in key areas of marketing. Students enter the program in their junior year and progress through the major together as a group. The program is demanding and requires a high level of commitment from students, but delivers an exceptional educational experience.

For students who seek a broad overview of marketing and a flexible learning experience, the Department offers the Marketing major. Most courses are offered Fall, Spring, and Summer, and many courses are offered online. While less hands-on than the Managerial Marketing program, students in the Marketing major will be able to tailor their courses to their own interests and will be well prepared to succeed in a wide range of marketing positions. Because of its flexibility, many students in other majors are able to add Marketing as a second major. As is true for all our majors, we encourage students to engage in an internship to enhance their classroom experiences.

The Entrepreneurship major is an interdisciplinary program that offers coursework enhanced with experiential learning opportunities. The goal is to instill an entrepreneurial mindset in individuals, whether they plan on starting their own business or wish to work for a large business that values people who can think like entrepreneurs.
