Due to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the 2020 Collegiate Summit scheduled for June 7-9th has been canceled.  The Marketing EDGE team is working on other ways to support students and your career goals during this trying time. We will be sure to keep you updated as we develop new initiatives.

Connecting undergraduates with top professionals in marketing, the Marketing EDGE Collegiate Summit explores how the savviest companies and brands are creating targeted, multi-channel campaigns using digital, data-driven strategies. A select group of undergraduates from across the country will discover rapidly growing careers in data-driven and interactive marketing.

Students who attend the Summit…

  • Gain industry insights and tips on launching your marketing career
  • Build your network while having fun at outings and networking events
  • Sharpen your resume and interviewing skills at career development workshops

Don’t believe us, hear what other students have shared about their Summit experience.
