The marketing minor is aimed at non–D'Amore-McKim students who wish to complement their current studies with a focus on marketing. Students can select among courses that explore topics such as consumer behavior, advertising, services marketing, marketing analytics, and international marketing.

Pursuing a marketing minor offers Northeastern students an opportunity to gain a deeper appreciation of consumers, markets, metrics, and brands to help them become better business practitioners no matter where their careers take them.
