Management - Marketing Option

This program is offered at Clark State's Beavercreek and Springfield locations.

The Marketing option provides students with a well-rounded education. It includes a strong foundation in marketing, highlighting the major areas of marketing including product management, promotional and pricing strategies, and physical distribution.

The program schedule that follows is designed for full-time students who have completed all prerequisites and who have no college preparatory recommendations. Many individuals, especially part-time students and those taking college preparatory courses, will require additional semesters of study. Students should consult their academic advisors for help in planning their schedules.

Students with significant business experience, where expertise equals or exceeds the outcomes of a particular course(s), are offered two options for earning experiential credit. Proficiency exams are available for selected courses. Other courses may allow a student to potentially earn credit through a portfolio presentation.
