Introduction

Marketing focuses on understanding, targeting and satisfying consumer markets on a global scale by offering superior value, innovation, and relationships. Students learn how to benefit from local, national and global market opportunities and trends through the conception and implementation of well-differentiated marketing tactics and strategies. The marketing major emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and concepts necessary for effective performance in the various functional areas of marketing (such as advertising, product development, marketing research, distribution). The field integrates economics, sociology, psychology, and statistics to develop marketing systems and processes. The marketing electives offer an opportunity for students to choose areas of more specialized knowledge according to their interests and career goals.

Considering market conditions, we offer exchanges between faculty and students such as marketing analysis and discussion, market simulation experiments, market management and research experiments. Our school has introduced the mature professional curriculum system of Kean University, USA, and integrates it with the Chinese professional courses to absorb the latest ideas from domestic and foreign counterparts. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of management models, entrepreneurship, consumer markets, media, technology and globalization processes related to contemporary economic trends, and will be able to work in multinational corporations, foreign companies, government agencies or other non-profit organizations.

We actively connect with off-campus entrepreneurs as students’ mentors, and launch an innovation and entrepreneurship competition. For example, in the “Shark Pool” business plan competition held in our school, the “social dog” cafe team and the “Page” campus souvenir team that become champions can register and operate related businesses in the designated area of the campus to serve the teachers and students of the whole school. The Business Skills Committee, which is composed of professional business teachers, also uses their own network resources to find the possibility of practical practice for students.
