Marketing students talking together in a classroomMarketers understand the critical nature of effective consumer relations and communication and its role in helping consumers make choices about products. Because of this, marketing is an integral job for most companies. At Aquinas College, we have distinguished faculty that bring a minimum of 10 years of corporate experience into the classroom. Hands-on experience is imbedded in the coursework to prepare our students for the real world. 

As part of the Business Department at Aquinas College, our mission is to prepare each student for a career of service to organizations, community, and family through the development of content knowledge and skill competencies within an ethical framework and grounded in the liberal arts tradition.
