UCF Stands For Opportunity, and similarly we believe that “Marketing is where Opportunity begins!”
Marketing is vitally important to all organizations and individuals, from corporations to small businesses, from CEOs to the proprietors of small retail stores, from global manufacturing operations to a new “high tech” startup. Nearly one-third of the civilian work force in the United States is employed in work related to marketing.
Interesting and challenging career opportunities are available, such as professional selling, retailing, advertising, e-business, market research, sport marketing, distribution and logistics, and purchasing. In addition, students with marketing degrees may find excellent job prospects in international markets. Marketing career opportunities also exist in a variety of non-business organizations, including hospitals, museums, universities, government, and social service agencies.
You will find much more information about our programs and faculty on this website. The primary focus of marketing is on customers…we consider you to be our customers and prospective customers, and we work hard to provide the best marketing education available anywhere.
