Marketing Executive Coaching

Each year dozens of marketing executives from around the country gather at Johnson for a 2-day symposium. These executives represent a wide range of industries and sectors giving students a great opportunity to network and better understand the marketing career. Marketing students are given the opportunity to get one-on-one coaching and hear the prospective of successful marketers. The executives also participate in a round table discussion of marketing topics, trends and career advice.

Mentorship Opportunities

Mentorship Match

The MA Alumni Mentorship Program connects current students interested in marketing with recent alumni working in the field. During the first semester of their second year, students are paired with Alumni based on mutual career interests. They have multiple phone calls over the semester to discuss issues relevant to marketing and to get candid career advice. Students are encouraged to maintain the relationship past the formal program as they move further into their careers.

"Having a mentor in an industry and role where one wants to build one’s career is invaluable. I was assigned not just one but two senior alumnus as my mentors. I was amazed to see their commitment towards my success. I could reach out to them for any kind of professional advice from preparing for an upcoming interview to resume critique and be assured that I will get authentic guidance. I feel that such a unique program truly reflects privileges that only Johnson marketing students get." - Tarun Babbar, One Year MBA, Class of 2014
