The American Marketing Association defines marketing as “the process of planning and executing the conception, promotion, and distribution of ideas, goods, and services to create exchanges that satisfy individual and organizational objectives.” Marketing includes the numerous business activities required to satisfy the needs of the consumer and industrial buyer. The marketing program at Alfred State focuses on the consumer and industry. Communication skills are emphasized in basic courses in management, accounting, advertising, consumer behavior, industrial marketing, and salesmanship. The program’s liberal arts foundation provides a basis for the human relations elements in the study of marketing.
