Student Marketing Association
About the SMA
The NGU Student Marketing Association was created to help marketing majors obtain practical experience and to facilitate networking among current students, marketing alumni and industry professionals in the Greenville area and beyond.
The SMA is open to students in all disciplines who have an interest in the principles and practices of marketing. The SMA is of particular interest to students in Visual Arts, Mass Communications, even Christian Studies students interested in Evangelism and Church Growth.
SMA meetings are open to all, though we do encourage participants to become full members in order to access full membership benefits.
The SMA Mission
To be a student-led, Christ-driven organization, which will equip our members with knowledge that will assist them in their professional careers.
The SMA Vision
To become an organization with a wide array of connections that will give students the opportunity and experience necessary to succeed in their careers.
Benefits of the SMA
As a member of the SMA, you will be able to participate in tours of local agencies, internships and other "real world" experiences which will help you establish strong ties with companies in the area. SMA also hosts several events throughout the year that are exclusive to members. These events are a great way to get to know both your professors and peers, and have a bit of fun in the process!
Being a member of the Student Marketing Association is also an exceptional resume booster.
All members receive a promotional tee-shirt each academic year.
