Marketing and Communication

Organizations’ relationship with their various stakeholders — customers, employees, communities, and shareholders — depends on the success of communication and consistency of message delivery.

Mary Baldwin’s Bachelor of Arts in Marketing and Communication takes a truly interdisciplinary approach that allows you to explore the nuts and bolts of how organizations operate and how they choose to communicate their brand through promotions, advertising, public relations, and sales functions. An understanding of why marketing communicators should apply the “triple bottom line” — people, planet, profits — as a measurement of success is integrated throughout the curriculum for a holistic marketing approach.
