In an increasingly diverse world, it is becoming more important to recognize and respect others’ cultural backgrounds. Growing numbers of consumers are more likely than ever to purchase brands that do so, making multi-cultural marketing an important tool to be successful in the current and future marketplace. Brands in today’s marketplace therefore need to adopt a multi-cultural view by developing marketing strategies that incorporate critical insights into unique cultural differences that drive consumer decision making.

To prepare students to make a positive difference in this environment, the Marketing Department and Doe-Anderson, a Louisville-based ad agency, worked with UofL Marketing students to co-create a specialized Multi-Cultural Marketing curriculum. This curriculum – available as a track for Marketing majors and as a Minor for all other students on campus – offers UofL students a unique and highly valuable educational experience that will be vital to becoming effective marketers and leaders in the future.
