Future marketing executives must be able to critically think their way through problem solving.  Students that focus on the MBA marketing concentration are taught how to reason in an open-ended manner, with an ability to derive an unlimited number of solutions. They are able to construct the situation, discover opportunistic problems, compile and analyze information in new ways while creating solutions. All this is done with supporting reasoning behind the solution.
