The Department of Food Marketing in the Haub School of Business offers an internationally recognized food marketing degree program at both the graduate and undergraduate level. The department is one of the largest majors in the university and provides students job placement with manufacturers such as General Mills and PepsiCo, retailers such as Wegmans and Wal-Mart, and marketing research firms such as AC Nielsen and IRI, as well as various advertising and consulting agencies. Our graduates pursue entry level marketing, analyst and sales positions and are fast-tracked to the executive level.
A unique aspect of the Food Marketing department is that most of the faculty have worked full time in the food industry and have practical first-hand experience of the industry in which they teach. Students study important issues from faculty who inform and influence the industry and public policy sectors regarding leading food issues.
The department, with the support of the Academy of Food Marketing, developed and maintains strong industry ties which assist the placement of graduating seniors, recruiting of incoming freshmen, advising of students, program promotion, and scholarships. The major’s own specialty library, the Campbell Library, is one of the largest depositories of food industry information in the world.
Outstanding students are given the opportunity to travel around the US to major food conferences in places like Chicago, Las Vegas, and San Diego. The program also offers service learning opportunities, international study tours and an active student run organization. A five year co-op program exists and provides exceptional employment opportunities and an economical approach to your education.
