Students learn about business in general and they are made to attend industry events right in the first year before deciding on a marketing specialization, which is usually called an option.

The second-year options are:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Marketing Communications
  • Professional Real Estate

Students’ GPA plays a very important role in deciding which option they can select in the second year.
