Field Placement

This component of the marketing curriculum is an integral part of the student's marketing education and preparation for the workforce. The student will work in an unpaid marketing position with an approved employer for 20 working days (5 days per week for 4 weeks; approximately 140 hours). Prior to starting the placement, the student will have prepared for the work assignment by attending seminars and completing research about the company and the industry. Before the placement, the student will establish mutually agreed performance objectives with the employer,and during placement will complete the tasks, be evaluated by the employer on their job performance and be evaluated by the faculty advisor based on the completion and submission of required workshops and reports.
