About the Marketing Department

The Department of Marketing provides courses and other academic support for the B.S. degree in Business Administration with an option in Marketing. In addition, the department is actively involved in the International Business option, the Master of Business Administration, and the Master of Science in Accountancy.

The Marketing faculty have diverse teaching and research interests. They hold doctoral degrees from the University of Cincinnati, Florida State University, University of Georgia, Indiana University, Mississippi State University, University of South Carolina, Duke University, and Virginia Tech. The faculty is supplemented with several adjunct faculty who provide a wealth of academic and professional experience to the department.

Students are encouraged to join the marketing and professional selling fraternity, Pi Sigma Epsilon. With one of the most active chapters in the country, UNCW's PSE students compete at regional and national competitions and organize major events.

The department also engages students outside of the classroom. Each December, a select group of students travel to New York City to learn about Marketing first hand. Students have had the pleasure of attending presentations at institutions such as Bloomberg, Hulu, Saks Fifth Ave., Interbrand, First Data and NBC.

Our students have gone on to work for prominent employers not only locally but nationally. Some of our recent students are currently working with companies such as Amazon, LiveOak, Lenovo, nCino and Verizon. Our faculty prides its self on ensuring students are well prepared for a wide variety of careers upon graduating.

The department currently has over 400 undergraduate students in the Marketing Strategy and Professional Selling Concentrations.
