Marketing is one of several Business and Public Policy (BUSP) degrees offered at YHC. The BUSP department trains students on how to run a business in a world governed by policy and how to create policies with the business world in mind. Marketing is the business function that creates customer demand for the company’s products or services, builds the company’s brand(s) appeal, and enhances customer satisfaction.

The Business and Public Policy majors are all built on the same liberal arts core and common business core. These majors have been designed with the intent to allow students to double major within the BUSP areas. Students are encouraged to do so.

When viewing requirements for your major, please select appropriate catalog year.
