GMAC’s Undergraduate Marketing Program

GMAC is back “on campus” this fall – promoting the value of graduate management education and encouraging undergraduate students to take the GMAT exam now and “bank their scores” for business. Building from our experiences, knowledge and successes over the past years, we are expanding our undergraduate campaign “Invest in Yourself” to 65 US campuses.

As we learned in our past efforts, these campaigns are not only good for the industry as a whole, but they also offer a great opportunity to promote your graduate business offerings and elevate your brand among a captive audience of undergrads on your campus. This campaign provides resources to undergraduates that include the value proposition of graduate management education to their future goals, the benefits of taking the GMAT exam now before they graduate, a Roadmap to Business School, and a host of other valuable resources – among which is a discounted exam package (We are inviting your undergraduates to test for $150 and save their scores until they are ready to apply to B-school.)

Working again with The AroundCampus Group, the on-campus undergrad marketing agency we partnered with last year, and BigLens- a digital marketing firm, here’s what we’re currently building for your campus:

Hiring and management of one or two current undergrads to serve as brand ambassadors through peer-to-peer engagement, tabling, and participation in campus events and fairs
Deploying geo-targeted, digital marketing campaigns on Google, Facebook, Instagram, and Snap Chat.

We recognize that Fall is a busy time for you. However, our learnings from our previous campaigns indicate your support and guidance is critical to the success of the campaign on your campus.

Some of the things we would appreciate your help include:

Connections to the right people… Introducing us to professionals and student leaders at your university (e.g., undergrad advisors, career services, student clubs/organizations/honor societies);
Access to common spaces and fairs/events… Helping the brand ambassador get good tabling space in the business school, on the quad and participation at campus fairs and events (this is also an opportunity to join forces). The brand ambassador assigned to your campus is Michele Mossino (michele.mossino@gmail.com). We have encouraged Michele to come by your office and say hello. Rebecca Harris is the campaign manager from the AroundCampus Group responsible for all ambassadors. Should you run into any challenges, please feel free to contact her at rharris@aroundcampus.com or reach out to Glenda (lucas@gmac.com).
Reinforced messaging… Including information about the microsite, information about GME, and special GMAT promotions in student e-comms like newsletters, emails, your social media channels, or intranets.

Here is link to the online toolkit we designed to assist your school in promoting the undergrad discount and available resources to help students prepare for the GMAT exam

Burns Entertainment & Sports Marketing, LLC. Spring 2017 Internship!

If you have a passion for sports and entertainment, and have aspirations to one day work in this industry, then Burns Entertainment & Sports Marketing, LLC. is the internship for you!

Burns works with the nation’s largest PR Firms, Corporations, Ad Agencies, Colleges, and Associations helping them select and hire celebrities and athletes to bring their campaigns and events to life.

Burns is looking for exceptional students to intern Spring 2017 (January through May) in one of our four company divisions:
AD, PR, Business Development/Social Media and Business Development/Agency Relations

Interns receive hands-on training covering contracts, research methods, use of the database, as well as general office skills. Interns assist Burns executives with all aspects of spokesperson and endorsement campaigns; speaking engagements and events; and business development initiatives. Interns participate in the creative side of the business by involvement in brainstorming sessions, researching celebrities and athletes for possible campaigns and events, and compiling full bios for client proposals. In addition, interns assist with event/campaign logistics and customer service tasks.

“My internship at Burns Entertainment was an unbelievable experience. As an advertising student, we spent a lot of time in class learning about advertising from the creative perspective. However, during my internship at Burns, I was able to see a different side of advertising and the process that goes into selecting talent for a campaign. This is not an internship where you are given busy work. I was able to assist the advertising division with researching potential talent, writing celebrity biographies, and designing presentations that were used to pitch to future clients. The Burns team has been so welcoming and willing to go above and beyond to get to know us and our career interests. I would absolutely recommend this internship to anyone interested in pursuing a career in entertainment.” -Danielle DeVito Spring 2016

“I interned in the PR department and came in with next to zero knowledge of what PR was or did or anything, and now I know so much more than I thought I would, not just about PR, but about business and relationships. The learning experience at this company is unreal, to go along with the staff. I enjoyed this internship because I didn’t feel out of place at any time. I was included in conversations, I was asked about myself and my opinions because everyone here cared what I had to say.” -Tim Costigan Summer 2016

This is a full-time internship for school credit (unpaid) and located in the Chicago area.

Please send your resume and cover letter via e-mail to
Janell.Santiago@BurnsEnt.com
Please check out the Burns website for additional informationwww.BurnsEnt.com

MindSumo Projects

Dear Professors,

MindSumo allows students to solve real-world projects from employers as a way to gain experience and better understand how the skills they’re learning in class will apply to their future careers. In the past, we have shared these projects with our students as an optional extracurricular.

This fall, MindSumo has launched the ability for instructors to incorporate these real corporate projects into their curriculum. Dozens of universities (including Wake Forest, Cal Poly, James Madison, and Bentley) are already signed up to use these projects in their classes. They come from Target, Toyota, State Farm, and others.

Click here to view a one page summary of this opportunity and get started.

Students absolutely love the experience, as it brings theoretical concepts to life and allows them to get constructive feedback from their professor and the employer hosting the project.

If you’re a student and would like to sign up and access the projects for free, click here.

Projects will be available until November 16th.

For more information contact:
