Fairfield University offers students the opportunity to study marketing in the contexts of a broad liberal education and a dynamic and flexible business curriculum. Here, students develop the skills to determine the product and service needs of consumers, as well as the challenges of creating and delivering these products and services, of pricing them right, and of letting the market know about them via traditional and non-traditional methods such as social media and digital advertising.
Marketing majors learn marketing’s primary functions related to consumer behavior, market research, and marketing strategy, and then take specialized courses that lead them toward the jobs they want.
Fairfield’s close proximity to a thriving business community provides exceptional opportunities for marketing internships and introductions to the business world. These opportunities afford excellent, hands-on experience for you to apply in your future career.
As a graduate, you will have a well-rounded view of consumer and organizational needs and an understanding of the applications of marketing research and communication techniques. This knowledge strongly prepares you to continue your education into graduate school or to find a career in professions such as sales, advertising, direct marketing, media planning and event coordination.
