Thursday, April 24, 2014

PHILADELPHIA (April 24, 2014) — Saint Joseph's University's student chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) received three awards at the AMA International Collegiate Conference in New Orleans on April 10-12.  

One of the largest professional associations for marketers worldwide, the student AMA organization provides undergraduates with professional experiences by teaching them how to manage finances, people, projects and deadlines. The annual International Conference consists of a series of lectures from current marketing professionals and builds networking connections and competitive learning opportunities for students.

Saint Joseph’s student chapter has a history of winning awards at the organization's national conference. This year the group won awards for outstanding marketing week, professional development and communications.

"Congratulations is owed to the current and past executive board members," says David Allan, Ph.D. '99 (MBA) chair and professor of marketing, "especially our current president Guiliana Carella and past president Maura Daddario. It's wonderful to see our students rewarded for their hard work and commitment to the AMA."
