Marketing - AAS
The Instructional Program
The associate degree (A.A.S.) in Marketing gives students a broad background in and a clear understanding of marketing and its function in business and society.
Two instructional tracks are offered: one prepares students to enter the workforce directly upon graduation; the other is designed to accommodate those students whose goal includes transfer to a bachelor degree program.
Students may participate in the Bronco Investment Group (BIG). The purposes of BIG are to learn and evaluate investment opportunities; acquire knowledge about money; use money to make money; learn to make wise decisions regarding money; and avoid major financial mistakes. BIG uses an online simulator to buy and sell stocks each week at club meetings.
Course work is designed so that, in addition to required courses, students can select electives to broaden their interests and employment opportunities.
