Marketing & Communications

Communication will prepare you for a dynamic career in social media, television, marketing, journalism, or corporate outreach. Communication majors learn creative skills while taking a deep dive into the evolving ethics and impact of modern media trends, setting them up for a sustainable career in any industry. 

 The Marketing major (BSBA) at Nichols College is designed for students who are interested in generating creative marketing solutions and effectively communicating these solutions to key stakeholders. With a focus on the development and management of brand relationships, positioning and segment analysis, and evidence-based decision-making, students develop the skills necessary to execute strategic communication plans, with a consistent approach that reflects a brand’s values, product positioning, and company mission across a variety of channels. 

 More than 80 percent of employers say that effective communication skills are among the most important when they hire a new candidate, which is why we focus on presentation and preparation.
