Department of Marketing

The Department of Marketing continues to build strong partnerships through Corporate Partnership Program

The Marketing Advisory Council provides an essential link with both the business community and our alumni. The advisory council is 19 years old and has been a great resource for students, faculty and the companies themselves over these years.  The department benefits from the advisory council by seeking their advice on curriculum and other educational matters.  We want to keep producing high quality graduates, so we use insights from our members to keep our classes relevant. 

Advisory council members benefit largely in the area of recruiting students because the advisory council members are very visible to our students.  We are delighted to announce that our most recent members include Kohl’s, NetStandard, PROS, Colgate-Palmolive, and Federated Insurance.  We invite advisory council members to speak in classes, at our marketing club, and attend an annual meeting held in September each year.  This year our annual meeting will be on Friday, September 25, 2015 at the KSU Alumni Center.
