Mihaylo students seeking a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing are required to submit a personal Marketing Portfolio to their MKTG 489 instructor when they take that course.
A complete Marketing Portfolio will consist of a Cover Page, Table of Contents, Generic Cover Letter, Current Resume and 3 Executive Summaries describing an academic (from any course completed), business, or volunteering achievements of your choice.
