The marketing of biomedical products, including pharmaceuticals, is a fast growing industry, and a large number of companies specializing in biomedical sciences are located in the Northeast, many in Connecticut. The department offers a degree in biomedical marketing, aimed at satisfying the need for students with knowledge of the fundamentals of marketing as well as an understanding of the science behind the development of biomedical products. At completion of the program, a Quinnipiac graduate has a degree unique among colleges and universities in the Northeast.
