Why Become A BEaP Major?
The Brand Engagement and Promotion (BEaP) track in marketing will prepare you to create integrated communication strategies derived from sound research, analytics, and insights. The purpose is to prepare you to then integrate these communication strategies for brands to use in order to engage customers at key passion points.
Upon admission as a junior, you will join a cohort of fellow students and professors that you will work closely with throughout the program. BEaP classes strive to integrate corporate clients and agencies to connect you with career opportunities.
BEaP classes meet in the Mike Curb Music & Entertainment Marketing Learning Lab, a 24-seat digital media lab equipped with the latest technology to create and manage promotion campaigns.
