The Marketing program provides instruction in marketing skills and related sales operations. Courses in the program provide a foundation of skills and knowledge related to basic principles of marketing and related economic fundamentals, management, merchandising, and human relations.

These programs include competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills, of an individual. Mississippi's goal is to ensure that all students are provided opportunities to learn, apply, and integrate marketing principles in a dynamic, global economy through the delivery of a quality marketing-based curriculum.
