Marketing Communication

As competition in the U.S. and global marketplace heightens, so does the importance of marketing and communication. Pressures in the marketplace and sweeping technological changes have altered how organizations distribute products and communicate with customers. Organizations must now include sustainability and the triple bottom line approach as decision-making tools before going to market.

Markets can also benefit from an interdisciplinary approach to the subject with the inclusions of consumer psychology, economics, communications, modern languages, and information technology.
