Welcome to WGHS Marketing Program.
Mrs. Kara Siebe
Marketing Education represents a body of instruction focused on marketing, including merchandising and management. The instructional program is designed to meet the educational and training needs of students who have employment or self-employment goals in marketing or have employment goals in another field and wish to acquire marketing competencies as part of their preparation.
In broad terms, successful workers in marketing are skilled in the functions of marketing; know how to relate to people; are computer literate; able communicators; reflect a positive work ethic; and apply economic understandings in a private enterprise system and international commerce. The curriculum is challenging and encourages experiential learning opportunities for students. Upon the completion of Marketing I and II, students are eligible to apply for dual college credit with Missouri State University through the course MKT150.
DECA is an integral part of the instruction within the Marketing Education program. DECA’s program of activities motivates students to increase their leadership and creative abilities, reinforces competencies developed in the curriculum and encourages a competitive spirit.
