Management and marketing studies are an ideal starting point for students seeking careers in the fields of human resource management, international management, marketing, operations management and organisational development. They are also a valuable complement to studies in another area, such as accounting or finance.

Ratchadakorn WongphothiphanI am majoring in marketing and management because I found both majors to be very practical and applicable in real life. In our subjects we use recent case studies and assignments that encourage students to think critically and understand how the concepts taught could be applied to different circumstances and business contexts. I love the unlimited creative reign in my marketing classes.
