B.B.A. in Marketing
The Mike Cottrell College of Business bachelor of business administration (B.B.A.) in marketing provides students with the skills for creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers both internally and externally. In order to be successful in marketing, graduates must be able to clearly communicate and present, plan in advance, think independently and strategically, work well in teams, and complete the analysis and research necessary to be successful in their positions.
Beginning fall 2017, students will be provided the opportunity to choose between three concentrations in marketing: digital marketing, general marketing or sales. Each concentration allows students to pursue specific areas in marketing pertaining to both the needs of the north Georgia region and their careers of choice. Additional details, including course listings, will be posted during summer 2017.
Bachelor's degree seeking students may declare a Business major at any point, but must successfully complete an online advising module related to their business major and meet admission requirements prior to enrolling in any advanced 3000/4000 level course.
