"Your opportunities are endless with internships, co-ops."

You’ve probably heard about the classic “4Ps” of marketing: product, place, price and promotion. Well, the University of Cincinnati’s Master of Science in Marketing program has a “fifth P” for you to think about: Purpose.

For a curriculum that is designed with intention and purpose, its intention is to help you find yours.

Lindner's master's in marketing program will provide you with the skills, knowledge and real-world experiences needed to become a world-class marketer, all taught in Cincinnati: the birthplace of brand management and modern marketing.
