And we're back! SMA completed a very successful Corporate Tour to NYC and New Jersey running Monday - Wednesday December 13-15. The trip was open to the full campus body and included members of SMA and our co-sponsor hasMBA for a total of 25 students in the MBA, MS, and part-time MBA programs. We visited two large CPG companies in New Jersey and spent a full day in NYC at agencies and other marketing firms. Our schedule included: Unilever, DraftFCB, Undertone Networks, Getty Images and Bayer Consumer Care. We were able to hear about the daily projects of marketers in a variety of functions and industries, ask questions about our presenters company, job, and career paths, and even participate in our own brainstorming session (called a Rumble) at DraftFCB. Thanks to all of these great companies for hosting us!
In addition, we capped off our day in NYC with a happy hour in Manhattan, where students from FMA and SMA networked with alumni an professionals from the area. Thanks to all who attended!
The trip was planned and executed flawlessly by first year representatives Pablo de Rosas and Erica Messina - Thanks so much for your hard work! Thanks also to Mary Terwilliger, Director of Corporate Relations for the Career Management Center, who attended the tour with us, and to our co-sponsoring club hasMBA and happy hour co-hosts FMA.
Happy Holidays and see you all in January!
