The University of Portland Marketing Group (UPMG) is a student-run organization dedicated to providing experience and learning opportunities to students that are interested in any and all facets of marketing. UPMG gives students the opportunity to network with industry professionals while gaining real-world experience. Each year we partner with local businesses to develop marketing campaigns for them. We also have guest speakers come in every semester to provide members with advice, experience, and details about their various marketing backgrounds.
Through these projects, students are given the opportunity to learn and grow outside of the classroom. We encourage each of our members to give us input on what they are interested in learning and experiencing within the marketing sphere, so that we can facilitate and create opportunities for them. Students pursuing any major are welcome to join the UPMG as marketing is applicable to any industry.

"I am most grateful for the many opportunities for students to get involved on campus. Some of my best UP memories have been when working with my peers in CPB (campus programming board) or UPMG (marketing club) to bring fun or informational events to students!"
