Saint Joseph University’s Haub School of Business provides students with niche majors and strong job placement.
Haub’s newest changes include creating a new major in entertainment marketing, adding real estate as a track, and increasing offerings for service learning courses.
The greatest asset that Haub provides for students is the opportunity to study niche majors and tracks. Majors such as entertainment marketing, family business and entrepreneurship, food marketing, pharmaceutical healthcare marketing, and sports marketing are majors that establish Haub as a unique institution.
Food marketing is one of the most popular undergraduate programs at Saint Joseph’s and provides students with an in-depth understanding of major manufacturers, supply chains, marketing, sales and other aspects of the industry.
“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 in the field in which they teach,” according to Haub’s website. “Students learn about important issues from faculty who inform and influence the industry and public policy sectors about them. In addition, food marketing students have the advantage of strong ties to the food industry for job opportunities after they graduate, and are able to take advantage of state-of-the-art facilities to get them there.”
Each Haub student has the following foundational required business courses:
- Financial Accounting
