One or more of the following concentration areas will be offered depending upon availability of interested students and faculty. However, a student may decide not to choose an area of concentration. S/he may select any three courses from one or more areas to complete course requirements. The majors are organized into departments as follows:

Strategic and tactical issues in the areas of promotion, pricing, product policy, sales management, and physical distribution are emphasized.
