Get a head start on your career by joining us in creating the Simmons Chapter of the AMA (American Marketing Association). Jill Avery, Professor for the SOM’s Brand Strategy classes, and Ed Vieira, Communications Professor for Advanced Advertising will be the club’s advisors.

We’ll be discussing and brainstorming ideas and getting the group set up for the ‘08-‘09 school year. In addition, the group will be entering an Annual Marketing Case Competition, will be hosting several prominent industry professional speakers, will be holding networking dinners with Simmons grads, and will be learning more about the myriad of career paths one can take in the field.
