OUR MISSION

Our mission is to enhance our members' educational, professional, and social experience through personal brand development and industry exposure.

AMA is much more than just a student organization. We are a community of fun, creative, and driven undergraduate students who are 100% dedicated to helping each other grow and succeed in both college and beyond. Our focus is on developing our members through providing connections to companies, gatherings among like-minded students, learning opportunities, and projects to gain real-word experience.

Here at the UMD American Marketing Association, we believe diversity and inclusion create the foundation for creativity. We promote the diversity of age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, religion, and major in order to embrace a variety of perspectives in our community. Whether you’re a passionate marketer or someone who is just dipping their toes into the field, we are excited to welcome you to AMA.

 

Welcome to AMA. We can't wait to meet you.
