American Marketing Association
Are you a marketing major? Are you interested in meeting other students majoring in marketing? Do you want to begin making professional contacts? Have you been wondering about what types of jobs are available to marketing majors? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then check out the St. Thomas chapter of the American Marketing Association. Speakers, networking, students, professionals and corporations – all of these things come together at AMA meetings. The UST AMA meets from noon to 1 p.m. every other Tuesday in Room 126, John R. Roach Center for the Liberal Arts. The first meeting of the 2004-2005 school year will be Tuesday, Sept. 28. Join AMA club members for lunch and more information on membership, including application and dues. The University of St. Thomas chapter of the American Marketing Association gives its members the chance to interact with other students in their major field, to network with professionals in the business community, and to gain a better understanding of marketing and related fields through a wide variety of speakers. The AMA is active in the St. Thomas community and it is an important resource for all marketing majors.
