School to kick off Marketing Week 2016
Industry experts will share expertise in marketing analytics with business students
The School of Business will host a week of events from Monday, Sept. 12, through Thursday, Sept. 15, in Capitol Federal Hall to promote the field of marketing and its career opportunities for students.
Marketing Week is the largest annual marketing-related event for the School of Business. The focus of this year’s lineup of events will be marketing metrics and analytics.
Students will learn from marketing professionals as they share their expertise and experiences with guest presentations in classes. The week of events will culminate with a panel discussion at the keynote event, “The Stories in Data,” at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 14.
Joyce Claterbos, lecturer and organizer of Marketing Week, said that marketing analytics is increasingly important in determining a company’s spending and ROI. Many entry-level positions in marketing now require some basic knowledge of how to use the data that has been gathered by the business for the purpose of generating insights to drive decisions and actions.
“Marketing is a very diverse profession, and it can be daunting for a student to decide which career path is best for them. During Marketing Week, we bring in marketing professionals to share their expertise and career experiences with our students,” Claterbos said. “This is the third year of Marketing Week, and we are especially excited this year to have a panel of five experts in marketing analytics for the evening event.”
