Concentration in Marketing
Advertising, brand management, marketing research -- these are some of the career paths open to Freeman MBA students in marketing. There are several key features of the Freeman curriculum that benefit you if you are developing a career in marketing.
Course content is dictated by the skills and knowledge sets you need to succeed in a marketing career. Curriculum is sequenced to synchronize the timing of your marketing training to the timing of your job search. Technical skills useful in summer internships and initial interviews are emphasized early in the curriculum and more complex integrative skills are developed later as you approach job site visits and graduation. Courses tie your training more tightly to the needs of the companies that recruit you, and hence, more tightly to your interests as you face a competitive job market.
