AMA Alumni night

The American Marketing Association at PCOM recently held their 3rd annual AMA Alumni night. They had 6 panelists (recent PCOM graduates) who are currently working at Lenovo, IBM, Red Hat, TEKSystems, Telit and ROI Revolutions. Approximately 60 current students in attendance and they asked the alumni specific questions on what the transition was like and how to better prepare (both as juniors and seniors) for the working world.

The AMA has enjoyed great success this year. In 2013, we had approximately 60 members; this year we are at 165+ (the membership grows with each meeting).

Kudos to faculty: Thomas Byrnes and Patrice Nealon for coordinating the AMA
