Marketing, Minor

The marketing minor at Saint Louis University's Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business offers business and non-business students exposure to multiple areas in the field of marketing.

Students are required to take MKT 3000 Introduction to Marketing Management (3 cr) and then select any four additional courses from the marketing curriculum. This flexibility provides students the ability to customize their marketing minor to those areas of most interest to them (e.g. sports marketing, retail management, brand management), making marketing a complement to many business or non-business majors.

Continuation Standards

Students must maintain a minimum 2.00 grade point average (GPA) in all courses used to fulfill minor requirements. If the minor GPA falls below a 2.00, students will have one semester to increase their minor GPA to a 2.00, or they will not be allowed to enroll in 3000- and 4000-level minor courses.
