What is Marketing?

The American Marketing Association defines marketing as “the activity, set of institutions and processes for creating, capturing, communicating, delivering and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners and society at large.” In simpler terms, marketing is what defines the business you are in, spells out who your customers are and gives them a reason to choose you.

For students entering the business world, marketing offers exciting opportunities. Do you want to translate creative ideas into practical realities? Do you want to develop innovative business strategies from in-depth data analysis? Do you want to engage clients and business partners and demonstrate how your product provides real value? If you find any of these possibilities intriguing, marketing may be the field for you.
