Marketing Club

The Marketing Club enables students to participate in activities that enrich their exposure to marketing in the "real world," with a focus on career development. Opportunities include the chance to interact with guest speakers, attend local conferences, and network with alumni.

The Marketing Club meets on alternate Thursdays during activity hour, and offers students opportunities to engage in marketing-related and social activities. Guest speakers discuss real-world marketing strategies and offer career advice. Field trips to companies and conferences bring marketing to life outside the classroom. Participation in the club's activities and government can provide valuable leadership training. The club is also a good place to meet other students and start building professional contacts.

Meetings

Meetings are held on every other Thursday at Noon in Hagan 101.

For more information about the Marketing Club, students should come to a club meeting, or contact Dr. Susan Rozensher, Faculty Advisor, at (914) 637-2749.
