Message from the Chair

Department of Management & Marketing

Krist Swimberghe, ChairWelcome to our website!  We are the Department of Management and Marketing at The University of Texas at Tyler. We are part of the Soules College of Business family, and our mission is to prepare our students for successful managerial and professional careers.  We offer undergraduate and graduate degree plans that can be tailored to your needs as you start or advance your career.  Here you will find friendly faculty and staff who are eager to help you along the career path of your choice.  

Our faculty are here to help you acquire the knowledge and practical skills you need to be successful in a rapidly changing workplace.  We utilize state-of-the-art technology in the classroom to bridge the gap between the classroom and the workplace.  Faculty are engaged in research projects that result in publications in top quality journals around the world, and their research ultimately benefits not only our students but also a variety of stakeholders at the local, regional, national and worldwide levels.  This combination of research and practical experience allows our faculty to better equip students to be successful in meeting their career goals.  

Our degree plans in Management and Marketing are rich with industry-related content, such as SAP, Category Management, Tableau, and SHRM Certifications.  We strive to provide knowledge and tools you can use now and for years to come as your advance in your career.  We encourage our students to join and participate in several campus organizations for management and marketing majors, some affiliated with national or worldwide parent organizations that serve practitioners in that field.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our Management and Marketing family.  Please reach out to us for more information.
