Vital to becoming a professional is to be an active participant in
activities with others in your field and we believe
this is especially important while you are still in school. Our Marketing and Hospitality students are remarkably engaged in the following student organizations.
American Advertising Federation (Ad Club)
AAF (Ad Club) members generally aspire to an advertising career and encourages participation in advertising problems and competition. AAF sponsors guest speakers and provides a variety of opportunities to help members prepare for an advertising career.
American Marketing Association
AMA is the largest and most
prestigious of all the marketing organizations in the United States. The
AMA chapter at CMU is the largest of the student organizations and
the broadest in scope. Its members generally have a marketing career as
their ultimate goal even though the specific career goals of each member
may be very different. Its
activities include field trips, service projects, and hosting guest speakers.
Hospitality and Tourism Association
HTA is designed to support those interested in the
hospitality, tourism and recreational fields. This is achieved through
involvement with guest speakers and industry tours. This
organization is strongly recommended if your studies or interests are
within hospitality and related industries.
Logistics Management Council Honor Society
a vehicle for learning experiences in logistical management. Members gain an
understanding of the logistics process through dialogue between students and
professionals in theory and practice, as well as by participating in consulting
projects for major corporations. Benefits of the organization include the
council of Logistics Management National Annual Conference and local CLM
roundtables, where students experience seminars, speeches and networking.
Pi Sigma Epsilon
PSE has over 50 chapters nationwide, and the CMU chapter has
the historical distinction of being the first in the state of Michigan.
PSE is the only national coeducational fraternity that
specializes in the development of professional sales and sales
management students. The organization supports students that are
interested in the field of professional sales through national and
regional sales competitions, sales focused professional mentoring and
career fairs, guest speakers, and sales oriented service projects.
