Marketing is more than advertising. It’s more than sales. It begins at the conceptual level of designing a product. It includes research into markets, competitors, and needs of a target audience. The American Marketing Association defined marketing as “the performance of business activities that direct the flow of goods and services from producer to consumer or user.” Students have the opportunity of completing a cooperative work experience to gain hands-on, real-world marketing experience.
