Earn Your Degree in Healthcare Marketing

Through a unique combination of courses in science, marketing, and business, we prepare you to work in the rapidly growing healthcare field. Most major courses have small class sizes, allowing professors to give more attention to each student and allowing students to get to know one another better. Graduates from our program have gone on to become sales representatives at leading companies in the healthcare sector such as Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Medtronic.

Students are encouraged to consider studying abroad! In fact, many business students are awarded study abroad scholarships to assist with the expense of attending study abroad programs. Southern Miss Business faculty lead three programs: British Studies, Asian Studies, and Italian Studies.

The College of Business and Economic Development is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

What Will I Learn?

Courses in anatomy and physiology, chemistry professional selling, healthcare regulation and ethics, and marketing in the healthcare industry provide students with a strong background in healthcare issues. Adaptability is important in healthcare, and the foundation provided by these and other courses give the students the ability to adapt to ever-changing needs and demands.

For three years in a row, Southern Miss Healthcare Marketing students have been selected for the Eli Lilly and Company Sales Internship. This coveted 10-week training opportunity with the global pharmaceutical company is a huge accomplishment as only 60 interns are chosen per year, nationwide.
