The Marketing Jam competition provides university students an opportunity to participate in an interactive, real-world simulation by addressing a business problem with a marketing solution. Working in teams, students will develop a presentation and submit collateral pitching their creative solution to the business issues presented by the client.
On competition day, students will be placed into teams with students from other universities, and will be introduced to the client and team mentor, a marketing professional. Teams will receive materials on site. The winning team has the option to present at the High Five Conference on February 28, 2018 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
