Salve Regina University's bachelor's degree in marketing blends creative and quantitative content, giving students the tools to develop strategies that create, deliver and communicate value to consumers. Outside the classroom, internship opportunities and active student organizations allow students to enhance their marketing experience while providing beneficial services to the community.

Explore Specific Areas of Interest

Salve Regina's internationally-accredited program provides knowledge and skills in value creation and revenue development while also allowing students to explore specific areas of interest. Students who choose the marketing minor acquire foundational understanding in the discipline while selecting electives that complement their education in areas such as business, communications and art.

Our liberal arts tradition and mercy and justice mission emphasize ethical and moral decision-making, the responsibilities of leadership and the development of equitable marketing solutions. As a result, Salve Regina graduates emerge as engaged, principled world citizens prepared for success in all areas of marketing.

Through Salve Regina's popular combined program, qualified undergraduates can earn their bachelor’s degree in marketing and a master’s degree in business administration or healthcare administration within five years.

Program Spotlight: American Marketing Association

Salve Regina's chapter of the American Marketing Association was recognized by the AMA Collegiate Chapters Council in three categories in the spring of 2020: Outstanding Chapter Planning, Outstanding Community and Social Impact, and Outstanding Membership Strategies. The chapter also ranked in the top 10 small school chapters in the country.

 This is a big accomplishment for us as a club to get recognized, because for the past few years we've definitely been rebuilding our club from the ground up. This is just another step in the right direction.

Alumni Experience: Kasey Walther '16

 American Marketing Association was an essential staple to my undergraduate education. AMA gave me the ability to work on projects with Fortune 100 companies that armed me with knowledge that is applicable in the everyday business workforce. I was fortunate enough to receive my first job offer after college through an AMA sponsor, after placing in the top three during the outbound sales competition. I continue to apply the sales skills I learned through AMA in my everyday work life.
