Advice for Marketing Majors
order to assist you in the completion of your marketing program in a timely fashion,
I would like to draw your attention to the sequence of courses that are important
for you to follow in order to do that.
your fifth semester, you should be completing the following marketing courses:
MRKTG 300/MKTG 301and MRKTG 310/MKTG 342 (SCM 200 is a prerequisite for MRKTG 310/MKTG 342; it is
hoped that you have completed this course already. If you haven't done so,
you must arrange to complete a basic probability and statistics course during
the summer before you can take MRKTG 310/MKTG 342). Also note that MRKTG 310/MKTG 342 is a
prerequisite for MRKTG 320/MKTG 330 and MRKTG 330/MKTG 440, generally offered in the Spring.
In addition, you should complete
FNC 300/FIN 301, MANGT 300/MGMT 301, and SCM 310 by the end of your junior year. These
courses are prerequisites for upper-level courses. In particular, note that
MRKTG 300/MKTG 301and MANGT 300/MGMT 301 are prerequisites for MRKTG 410/MKTG 410(Sales Management), which
is usually offered in the Spring.
your sixth semester, you should be completing the following marketing courses:
MRKTG 320/MKTG 330 and MRKTG 330/MKTG 440 along with other additional and supporting courses.
Also note that you are required to take 12 credits from a particular non-business
supporting area like International Studies, Education Abroad, Foreign Language,
Psychology, Quantitative Methods, or Written and Oral Communication. This
is a good time to begin taking these courses if you have not already done so.
Some of you may wish to extend the 12 credits to 18 and complete a minor. In that
event, do complete the paperwork (Declaration of Minor form) early so that you
are not locked out of certain courses that may be available on a priority basis
to majors and minors only.
470/ECON 470 and MRKTG 470/MKTG 445 have also generally been offered during the summer. These
courses can be used to fulfill the international business course requirement.
Transfer students in particular may look into these courses if you need to get
your schedules aligned.
In your seventh and eighth semesters, select appropriate additional and supporting courses that are outlined in the Marketing check sheet. You should plan to schedule MANGT 470W/MGMT 471W around this time.
It is extremely important to note the following: You may not take MANGT 470W/MGMT 471W until you have satisfied the prerequisites for this course which include FNC 300/FIN 30, MANGT 300/MGMT 301, SCM 310, MRKTG 300/MKTG 301, and at least seventh-semester standing; and FNC 300/FIN 301 has the following prerequisites: ACCTG 211, ECON 002, ECON 004, SCM 200 or STAT 200, and fifth-semester standing.
