Marketing is about selling products—and much more. It’s about building sustainable enterprises and improving lives. In our values-based marketing major, students grapple with the big ideas and put theory into practice in real-world settings.

An evening degree for ambitious students

Marketing is one of the in-demand majors Brennan is offering in its Evening BBA program. The format is designed for highly motivated students who have earned an associate’s degree and are looking for a bachelor’s program that offers outstanding quality but also fits a busy schedule. Our program allows you to work full-time and study full-time without sacrificing Brennan’s signature relationship-centered and experiential learning models. Classes are online, blended and on-campus, and students remain part of a dynamic cohort.

Connecting with consumers

The field of marketing links producers and consumers, and involves everything from advertising and consumer analysis to distribution and product design. Our program is built around Brennan’s Bachelor of Business Administration core, which provides a robust foundation. Beyond the fundamentals, it includes courses in business ethics and law. Students get a taste of the real world in yearly practicums that include a required internship and a capstone experience.
