WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT
As President of the Vanderbilt Marketing Association, I’d like to welcome you to our site on behalf of the 2014-2015 Board and all of our members. VMA positions its 80+ members for success in recruiting for summer and full-time marketing positions. We expose students to the available marketing-related opportunities and help them build the skills necessary to excel as marketers, both at Owen and in their future ventures.
President Devin Kunysz Class of 2015
The mission of the Vanderbilt Marketing Association (VMA) is to further develop the marketing skills of all our members by extending learning outside the classroom. Through collaboration with faculty, alumni and marketing peers, we strive to build the tools that are vital to securing a top-notch job or internship.
Our programming includes career development sessions such as a Marketing Careers Symposium, National Career Fair prep sessions and a variety of speakers and company events. Additionally, the VMA’s signature school-wide event is Marketing Madness, a product positioning and branding competition at Owen, which takes place each fall.
VMA members and alumni are active in marketing careers within Consumer Packaged Goods, Healthcare, Technology and much more.
