Minor in Multicultural Marketing
Unit: College of Business
Academic Plan Code(s): MKT_MINMCM
Both global and U.S. markets are increasingly diverse. In the U.S. alone, the minority population (or “emerging majority”) makes up 38% of the population and is expected to exceed 50% by mid-century, a status already attained in California, Hawaii, New Mexico and Texas. Buying power is following suit. Despite this evolution of the marketplace, marketing practices remain largely hegemonized – translating general market plans (predominantly targeting white populations) to minority audiences without nuanced insight into cultural differences. This program will help change that thinking and embrace a multicultural view of marketing.
For business majors, enrollment in the College of Business is required.
For non-business majors, students must have completed 51 or more semester hours with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
Students must complete the program prerequisites and earn a GPA of 2.5 or higher in those prerequisites in order to pursue the Marketing Core.
