About the Marketing Department 

The Marketing Department is a standout program in the NJCU School of Business. The NJCU Marketing Department is aligned with the career competencies employers value most in new hires, offering a comprehensive program focused on long-term student success.

Completion of the Marketing major prepares students for careers in marketing and related fields such as public relations, integrated marketing communication, market research, marketing data analytics, digital marketing, advertising, and more.

Students who major in Marketing select at least one area of concentration: Digital Marketing, Marketing Analytics, or Public Relations. Non-Marketing majors can minor in these areas of study.

Outside of the classroom, the NJCU Marketing Department helps students develop their interpersonal skills and professional competencies. This includes an in-house internship placement program for hands-on job experience and invitations to numerous on-campus and on-location Marketing events where students can build their professional network. The Department’s Marketing Mentorship Program provides personalized career and academic guidance to students.

Marketing majors and non-majors can gain additional career and leadership experience in Marketing and related fields through membership in the NJCU Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and the NJCU Chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA).
