How can you serve consumers with integrity as you pursue profit?

banner image background banner image background

The average person encounters thousands of advertisements each day that market everything from ideas to skills to experiences. The Business - Marketing concentration trains Christian marketers who understand the needs of the customer and are able to develop and execute a clear and compelling marketing strategy in a God-honouring way. You are grounded in a biblical framework for marketing, equipped to think deeply, ask tough questions, and create marketing plans that challenge society’s ethical status quo.

Business - Marketing is a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. It is offered as an honours major and as a major. The Business - Marketing program is CIMMO accredited.

Right from the start, the Redeemer School of Business equips you with strong analytical and decision-making skills, the ability to communicate clearly and succinctly, and a Biblically-based ethical framework.

Your first- and second-year courses introduce you to the different disciplines within business studies before digging deeper into topics that are more specific to the Business - Marketing stream. You have the flexibility to design a program tailored to your specific interest in marketing while also getting a broad and balanced understanding of all business disciplines with practical, real-world experiences you will encounter later on in the program.

Business — Marketing The Core

The Core Curriculum is a set of 10 courses that every student takes. The courses are woven through every major and gets you to think deeply and broadly about what you’re studying. Think about it this way…

  • Entrepreneurs who understand historical trends and are effective collaborators are more successful in their business ventures.
  • Managers are more capable leaders when they understand their responsibilities to customers, employees, and their communities.
  • Accountants interpret data more effectively when they understand the people and processes behind it.
  • Marketers analyze target markets more strategically when they understand social and demographic trends.

In the Classroom

In your classes, you will build a solid foundation across the disciplines while also honing soft skills in courses like Marketing Communications, Brand Management, and Digital and Social Media Marketing. Small classes taught by dedicated professors who are experts in their field mean you will conduct and critically assess research as you review the methods, concepts and findings of contemporary business practices.

Beyond the Classroom

In Redeemer’s business program, Prof. Susan Van Weelden, Prof. Laurie Busuttil and their colleagues are advancing the case method, an experiential learning approach for business students where students take on the role of managers in a variety of industries, organizations and scenarios. This case method provides a way for students to practice and gain confidence in their management skills.
