Marketing students focus on understanding the marketplace and developing appropriate marketing strategies for their organizations. Marketers bring buyers and sellers together in the marketplace to allow each party to realize their desired outcomes. For buyers, this means solutions to their problems. For sellers, this typically means increasing market share, revenue, profitability, and other outcomes. Marketers create items of value (goods, services, ideas, etc.) that are priced, promoted, and distributed in a competitive and dynamic marketplace.
