Students will develop real-world skills used by marketing professionals which integrate an understanding of eating psychology, food purchasing decision-making behaviors and prevailing dietary guidance with marketing tactics including message development, influencer mapping and social media. By the end of the course, students will be able to leverage the power of food marketing to promote positive nutrition.
