Associate of Science in Medical Office Management

 

This degree advances the information that students have already learned in the associate degree. They apply the information they have already obtained in a more advanced study environment. For instance, they will be introduced to case studies and apply their knowledge to solve issues that are afflicting an organization and discus how they would overcome the problem.

At this level, they will be involved in group structure commensurate to the real world of business. Developing a marketing plan as a group will introduce them to one of the many aspects of marketing.

 

What qualities should a Marketing student have?

Marketing isn’t for everyone. The field of marketing is a very exciting and rewarding career; however, students need to possess certain personality traits and characteristics to make it in the classroom as well as the world of marketing. Students need to be creative and self-motivated, they have to be able to work well in a team environment, they must learn to be detailed-oriented, and they must understand that they will be put into a leadership role at times. There really is no one trait or list of specific traits, but a combination of these and many more.

What specific skills or knowledge are taught in the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing program?

There are numerous skills or knowledge that you’ll come away with in the marketing program. First, you’ll learn the importance of knowing your target market in terms of their wants and needs. If you don’t understand this, then it’s almost impossible to know how to serve them. Second, you’ll learn customer relationship management. Without building that lasting, personal relationship by applying trust, knowledge of the product, empathy and many other unknowns, you have no customers.

What is the most important or unique thing about Sullivan’s Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing program?

The instructors bring real-world application to the classroom by meeting with professionals in the field and discussing what you really need to know in order to be successful in this field. While it is important to discuss marketing topics in the classroom, it’s even more important that you have the opportunity to actually apply what you have learned.
