Siena’s Marketing curriculum provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify marketing opportunities and develop appropriate marketing strategies to profitably pursue those opportunities while remaining responsive and accountable to all stakeholders in the marketplace. Courses expose students to major concepts, skills, and tools that educate students for the theory and practice of modern marketing as well as undergird student preparation for graduate programs in business.
Marketing majors receive cutting edge marketing education from a faculty committed to learning centered pedagogy with a mix of lectures, readings, discussions, case studies, and computer simulations.

Students acquire knowledge, clarify attitudes and values, and develop communication, interpersonal, and analytic skills that lead to critical thinking and complex reasoning in making enlightened decisions.
