The American Marketing Association Collegiate Chapter at the University of Arkansas is a student-run organization dedicated to providing students with the tools, real-world experience and networking opportunities that will aid them in their careers through involvement with both the University of Arkansas and the community.

Purpose

In addition to working with non-profit companies to create marketing campaigns, organizing fundraisers, and offering guest speakers throughout the year, they also take 3-5 students to the AMA International Collegiate Conference yearly to aid in our chapter's knowledge and operations. Each year AMA strives to perform above and beyond all expectations to benefit the students and the University of Arkansas.
