If hanging out with other aspiring marketing professionals outside of the classroom sounds like fun, check out the University of Maryland’s chapter of the American Marketing Association. Known as terpAMA (the school’s mascot is the terrapin), this student group loves activity – case competitions, annual trips to the AMA collegiate conference, keynote speakers brought to campus, on-site visits to marketing firms and corporate headquarters.
What goes on in the classroom is pretty exciting, too. The Robert H. Smith School of Business prides itself on providing marketing majors with a solid understanding of basic principles as well as up-to-the-minute instruction on current practices in our ever-changing world. The school even operates its own behavioral laboratory to conduct groundbreaking research on human behavior.
