Marketing is the business function that identifies unfilled consumer needs and wants, defines and measures their magnitude, determines which targeted market segments the business can best serve, and decides on appropriate products, services, and programs to deliver to them. Effective marketing and promotional strategies are important to success of profit-oriented as well as nonprofit organizations.
The Marketing Management Associate in Applied Science Degree focuses on the decisions facing marketing managers as they attempt to match the objectives and resources of the organization with needs and opportunities in the marketplace. The Marketing Specialty Diploma is designed for goals in business-to-business sales, fashion merchandising, retailing or marketing support in either public or private sectors.
