PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE MARKETING DEGREE PROGRAM IN THE MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER IN THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2012-2014

NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S):
  MARKETING


IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IS YES, THE COLLEGE MUST CONSULT NEAL ARMSTRONG WHO WILL DETERMINE WHETHER SACS-COC APPROVAL IS NEEDED.:
• Is this a new degree program? No
• Does the program offer courses that will be taught off campus? No
• Will courses in this program be delivered electronically? No

EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
  The list of electives from which students may choose to satisfy requirement 3 is being expanded to include MKT 340S and MKT 366P. Students who use MKT 366P to satisfy their internship requirement may not also count the course toward the nine hours of electives necessary to satisfy requirement 3.

Indicate pages in the Undergraduate Catalog where changes will be made.

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):

 

Regarding MKT 340S, numerous marketing majors study abroad and receive credit for worthy courses that aren’t part of the UT Austin course inventory. In this situation, the Department of Marketing assigns the MKT 340S designation. As the Department alone awards this credit and only for appropriate coursework, it is reasonable and more efficient for courses so designated to automatically satisfy elective requirements.

The case for MKT 366P is similar. Currently, this practicum course may be substituted for an internship. Students who don’t use MKT 366P to satisfy the internship may use it to satisfy three of the nine elective hours listed in requirement 3. Increasingly, students wish to gain more hands-on experience with projects. Consequently, many who carry out an internship are opting to take this course in addition. At present, students who have completed an internship may petition to have MKT 366P count as an elective. The department views MKT 366P as an appropriate elective for these students and countenances having MKT 366P count automatically for this group. In summary, the department recommends allowing MKT 366P to count toward either the internship or elective hours, but not both.
