UW-Parkside’s Business Department offers a marketing major that is an exciting field to pursue for careers in advertising, sales, product management, market research, public relations, and much more.
Our marketing major is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International. Only 30 percent of Business Schools in the nation hold this prestigious certification of quality education valued by employers.
Students also completing the Sales Certificate have earned 30 awards at National Competitions since 2009 paving the way for many graduates to be recruited by major global employers.
Students will learn in a small class environment giving them the chance to collaborate with their professors personally. UW-Parkside also has the Solutions for Economic Growth Center. This center gives the opportunity for students to find solutions to real problems affecting real companies and receive hands-on work experience. The Parkside American Marketing Association is a student-run marketing organization that also provides students with many leadership opportunities.
Many marketing internships are offered around the Kenosha and Racine area by major corporations like Uline, Jockey, and Snap-On to allow students the opportunity to apply what is learned in the classroom.
