From the chair

Welcome from the Marketing Department!

We are ready to go, and our Marketing faculty are working hard to make this a great semester for all.

Are you one of the lucky students to be in Dr. Sojka’s Intro Marketing course? Did you know that Dr. Sojka has won numerous teaching awards? Last year she won the Lindner Undergraduate Excel Teaching award, and the Academy of Marketing Science national teaching award. Last month she won the American Marketing Association’s Innovative Teaching Award! When you win a teaching award from the AMA, it means you are one of the best teachers IN THE WORLD! You’ll see why when you take her class. This semester’s project is for the Cincinnati Dance Marathon which benefits Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Isn’t it great to use Marketing for good?!

We have many great faculty and outstanding experiential learning opportunities that await you this semester. Let’s get started!
