Bachelor of Marketing (BS)

School of Social and Human Studies
Atlantic International University

The Bachelor of Marketing (BS) program objective is to help students develop an understanding of consumer behavior and the broader environment within the operations of the organization, as well as developing skills in collecting, analyzing, and using information about customers, competitors, and the environment for managerial decisions. The Bachelor of Marketing (BS) program is offered online via distance learning. After evaluating both academic record and life experience, AIU staff working in conjunction with Faculty and Academic Advisors will assist students in setting up a custom-made program, designed on an individual basis. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/courses, use the same books, or learning materials. Instead, the online Bachelor of Marketing (BS) curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses strengths and weaknesses with respect to market opportunities in the student’s major and intended field of work. Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of AIU’s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program.
