A delegation from the OSU Marketing Club recently attended the International Collegiate Conference of the American Marketing Association. The conference was held at the New Orleans Sheraton from April 10-13 and welcomed over 1,200 undergraduate marketing students from the U.S. and abroad.  Student teams participated in competitions including a business simulation, a case project, and a chapter exhibit.

The OSU teams tied for first overall in the exhibit competition, earning “Most Educational Exhibit,” and third in their bracket in the business simulation. Titled “Social Media: One Platform to Rule them All,” the exhibit was an interactive quiz game which flashed questions about various types of social media on a computer screen. Competitors then played “Pistol Pete” and shot at the right answer with an OSU themed Nerf gun.

In addition to the competitions, the students participated in numerous workshops and seminars focused on club operations and leadership as well as skills and strategies for making the transition to a marketing career. Participants also enjoyed seeing the many sights, sounds and food that New Orleans has to offer.

The OSU Marketing Club is open to all students who have an interest in marketing, and meets monthly in addition to many special events held throughout the year. Interested students should contact Taylor Kolbeck, President Elect for 2014-2015 at taylor.kolbeck@okstate.edu or apply through Campus Link online.
