Due to the growing importance of marketing as a field of study and the increased demand from students for studies in marketing, the Faculty recognized the need for a special degree in marketing. As a result a “marketing unit” was established in January 1994, which introduced the B.Sc degree in Marketing Management.
The marketing unit became the Department of Marketing in 1996. Starting in the academic year 2001/2002, the degree has been renamed as “B.Sc. Business Administration (Marketing) (Special)” and the curriculum has been strengthened. However, being updated with the new development in the field of marketing management, currently the B.Sc. in Marketing Management (Special) Degree is retained as the official title of the degree.
