Our two-year program starts with a core set of courses which allow you to begin applying the foundational concepts of marketing that professionals call upon in the design and development of strategic and effective marketing programs. These courses include campaign development, financial decisions for marketing, strategy development, and leadership orientation. Students and faculty use the classroom to engage in practical exercises and discussions around topics like customer relationship marketing and digital marketing. They also have the opportunity to discuss and apply their knowledge to live marketing problems unfolding in the real-world as they occur throughout the semester.
With an eye to the expansive nature of the field of integrated marketing, our program is designed with multiple options within each concentration and an opportunity to take a course elsewhere at NYU to create an academic plan that truly meets your unique goals.
Internships provide students with the opportunity to acquire professional experience and add a real-world perspective to their studies. Working on-site at a corporation, nonprofit, governmental organization, or educational institution, internships provide working experiences offered with educational guidance and mentorship. Students apply the knowledge acquired through their coursework to industry practice and explore career options.
Following the core courses, students select a more focused path towards a sector of marketing meant to hone their expertise and delve deeper into the areas that typically define some of the major career options for our graduates: Brand Marketing, Digital Marketing, or Marketing Analytics.
