Conference '23 Recap
Marketing Journeys: Paths & Possibilities

On November 10th, 2023, TU-AMA hosted its 11th Annual Regional Conference!

This year's theme sought to explore professional marketing journeys, navigating the variety of paths and possibilities.

The event invited students of any major, alumni, and professionals to join TU-AMA for a day of speakers and networking opportunities.

Professional guest speakers from Vanguard, JBL, and Microsoft shared their insights with the guests, and a case competition sponsored by Vanguard created further involvement for collegiate AMA members.
