Over the past few years, the field of marketing has undergone significant changes. After conducing market research and listening to students we determined that the subject at the top of everyone's wish list was digital marketing. This newest course offering from the Pamplin School of Business is taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and includes aspects of social media marketing, web design, and online advertising, as well as search engine optimization.
The Northwest MBA Consortium Career Day is an exciting informational forum where graduate students can attend panel presentations led by industry experts, connect with their MBA peers from six other regional universities, and learn about career opportunities.
When asked about her involvement with her alma mater, Sandra Suran replies that in some ways, she never left: "I am very proud of the University and desired to help them achieve the higher goals and even greater prominence that is possible now."
Many managers in the arts are not fully prepared or qualified t o be running an organization, which is why I decided during my undergraduate years that I wouldn't be one of those managers. I knew I needed not only lots of relevant and meaningful experience, but also an education that provided me with business knowledge. The EMBA program at UP brings together people that represent a wide spectrum of the nonprofit community, and will give me the tools I need to be a capable manager.
