Senior Ian Deloney finds his calling in LSBE's Marketing and Graphic Design program. 

Ian Deloney, a senior at UMD, had quite the childhood, living in three different cities in Texas, two cities in Arkansas, a suburb of Nashville, as well as a suburb of Minneapolis. He grew up with a passion for photography and graphic design and spent a lot of time honing his skills. He also enjoyed freelancing for various companies using those skills.

When it came time to choose a college, Ian knew that he wanted to be primarily business-based. However, Ian always had a passion for art. He had never thought about going into graphic design, but after finding out how well balanced between business and art the Labovitz School of Business and Economics’ Marketing and Graphic Design major is, he was convinced. “I have not been interested in this field forever; it wasn't until about two years ago that I found out about it,” he says.

LSBE's Marketing and Graphic Design program is unique to UMD. It's a blend of marketing and graphic design knowledge, which provides students with diverse skills. Students not only learn the fundamentals of business but also get focused training in marketing and design. Read more
