Marketing isn’t just an important part of business success – it is the business. Everything else in the business depends upon marketing. Marketing not only determines consumer need, it also helps create consumer need.
Marketing Club at Minnesota State University, Mankato is an organization for students that are interested in the marketing industry. Taylor Lindaman, the Director of the Speakers of Marketing Club states that we connect students to future employers and provide resources to better our future by attending company tours and bringing in speakers to talk about their industry experience, stories, and advice. “We’ve taken many company tours, including Boeing, United Airlines, CBD Marketing, and Hunt Adkins,” Lindaman said. “Moreover, as a group, we attend sporting events, concerts, and anything exciting happening around the area,” she added.
Being asked about any specific requirement to join the club, Lindaman stated that Marketing Club is open to all majors and grades. Marketing Club team is active over social media.
“You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn at “MNSU Marketing Club” to get details on upcoming events, meetings, and to ask any questions,” Lindaman stated. The club has meetings every week on Tuesdays in Morris Hall room 103 from 4:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. Anyone can stop in to join or ask questions about the Club.
The Marketing Club don’t usually arrange “events,” but it organizes opportunities to network and connect with other business professionals. “We have our annual spring trip to Chicago during the first weekend in April and have a company tour on Friday, April 19th with Optum in the cities,” she said.
The Marketing Club recently hosted a speaker series that consisted of four workshops led by employers to prepare members for the career fair and offered one-on-one advising from industry professionals.
Being inquired about the future of Marketing Club of the University, Lindaman said, “In the future I see Marketing Club becoming AMA affiliated, continuing to increase their membership numbers, and giving students more opportunities for real-world experiences.”
She continued that Marketing club benefits its members because you are constantly networking with your peers and other business professionals. These relationships can lead to internship and job opportunities. The club hopes to increase its connections with different companies to give its members maximum experience of the business market.
