Student Organizations

Part of being professional is being an active participant in activities with others in your field. In the marketing area we believe this is important even when you are still in school. There are several student organizations our students are actively involved with.

American Advertising Federation (Ad Club)

The members of Ad Club generally aspire to an advertising career. This group has speakers, but much of its efforts are on an intercollegiate competition sponsored each year by a national marketer. In this competition students prepare a campaign and present it to a panel of advertising professionals in Chicago.

American Marketing Association

The AMA chapter at Central 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. The AMA is a chapter of the largest and most prestigious of all the marketing organizations in the United States. Its activities include guest speakers, field trips, and service projects.

Hospitality Services Association

This organization is designed to support those interested in the hospitality, tourism and recreational fields. This is achieved through involvement with guest speakers and tours of facilities. This organization is strongly recommended if your studies or interests are within the hospitality and related industries.

International Food Service Executives Association

IFSEA offers a unique opportunity to experience all the diverse aspects of the hospitality and food services industry. IFSEA members hear guest speakers, visit professional kitchen facilities and learn about new foods, service and management. Good food, good times, education, participation and networking are all important parts of IFSEA.

Logistics Management Council Honor Society

Official Website
Logistics focuses on the activities involved in the physical distribution of products such as transportation and storage. The group invites speakers and conducts field trips. Each year members participate in at least one consulting project. As part of the project, they work on an actual distribution problem faced by a business organization.

Pi Sigma Epsilon

Pi Sigma Epsilon has over 50 chapters nationwide, and the CMU chapter has the historical distinction of being the first in the state of Michigan. Pi Sigma Epsilon 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.

CMU is an AA/EO institution, providing equal opportunity to all persons, including minorities, females, veterans, and individuals with disabilities. | CentralLink
