The specialization in Sales and Services Marketing is a more focused option than the general marketing specialization. This specialization is the only undergraduate curriculum of its type in the U.S. given that it focuses on the synergy between sales and services marketing. These two areas are complementary as salespeople can only be successful by delivering superior service to their customers. Further, the U.S. has shifted to a service based economy and most college graduates begin their careers in sales jobs - so this specialization leads to tremendous employment opportunities.

Students completing the Sales and Services Marketing specialization must complete University, general degree, admission core, and business core requirements for the BSBA degree, including admission to the BSBA program.
