Clarke, complete the MKTG 490 Application no later than October 28, by 5:00 p.m. EST to apply for a spot in the Special Topics in Marketing course. The MKTG 490 course can count as a marketing elective for both B2B and B2C marketing concentrators. The class will meet on Fridays from 2:00p-5:00p during the spring semester.

JMU Marketing Teams Excelled in the 2010 Google Online Marketing Challenge. In the 2010 Challenge, all five JMU teams performed in the “semi-finalist” category which means they performed better than at least 2,326 global participating teams.

The JMU student teams from the 2008 and 2009 Challenges attained global recognition (see Students Wanted for the 2010 Google Online Marketing Challenge). Stephanie Scheper, a JMU Marketing ’09 grad, said “I learned so much from participating in the Challenge. I can say with 100% confidence that I consider it the project I got the largest ROI out of in college.”
