Department of Marketing & International Business




Technology has fundamentally changed how companies and their customers communicate. Interactive thinking needs to be at the heart of all marketing strategy, and interactive channels— at the heart of all marketing delivery. As customer control over communications with companies and brands is increasing, it is imperative for companies to regularly monitor and sustain multi-way interactions via newly emerging venues.

Digital Marketing is defined as moving from a transaction-based effort to a conversation with customers. A relationship is formed and maintained as information and data are continually provided by the customer to the firm mediated by technology. Many companies seek employees with the necessary resources and skills to stay abreast of latest developments in the areas of digital marketing and electronic commerce. A major or minor in Digital Marketing offers you exciting in-depth courses in these areas that will provide you with the skills needed to enhance customer satisfaction. Pursuing this career track will increase your competitiveness in today’s challenging job market.
