The Marketing Department believes that students are best prepared for their careers by combining rigorous classroom learning with hands-on experiences working with companies and not-for-profit organizations. We build this into the program with our innovative Marketing Workshop which is required by all undergraduate Marketing students. The Workshop provides real-world team-based consulting projects with companies ranging from local entrepreneurs to leading global companies like Ford. In addition to presenting their analyses and recommendations to their clients, Marketing Workshop students also present their research to the university community as part of UNH’s annual Undergraduate Research Conference (URC). Our URC is the largest in the nation and students from all of UNH’s undergraduate majors participate.
We also encourage our students with a GPA of at least 3.0 to take advantage of opportunities for internships. Each year companies in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine contact us looking for students to assist them with projects. Because internships are done for course credit, you will work with a Marketing faculty sponsor who will help you set the learning goals for the internship and will evaluate the final paper you write on your experience. The company or organization hosting your internship will also provide a written evaluation of your work with them.
There are three ways to find out about the Marketing internships we currently have available for undergraduates:
- Become an active member of the Marketing & Advertising Club (MAC), UNH Sales Club or the UNH Women in Business Club (WIB)
