Whether in advertising, the development of web-based initiatives, or in the conduct of market research, marketing professionals must understand the communication process and the most effective methods of conveying information. Students in this dual concentration will augment their understanding of the core concepts taught in their marketing courses and will be better prepared for employment or graduate study.
The dual concentration in marketing and communication allows Wharton students who are concentrating in marketing to take four courses in the Annenberg School of Communication and to have this cluster of courses recognized on their transcript as a second concentration. Students who wish to pursue a second concentration in communication must first declare a primary concentration in marketing. The concentration in communication may not be used as a primary or sole concentration.
Students are strongly encouraged to declare the dual concentration no later than the first semester of their junior year to ensure that they will be able to enroll in the necessary courses to complete the program.
