Careers in Marketing
Hello, I’m Laura Lane, Sector Director for Marketing, Media, Entertainment, and Sports. I partner closely with the Marketing Club as well as faculty, alums, and employers to help students learn and grow as marketers.
We ensure there is a robust curriculum that begins with marketing fundamentals and runs all the way through how to succeed on the job. We understand that every student is different and every career search is different, so we strive to help students find their fit even if the path is non-traditional. I look forward to working with you soon!
Reach Out to Us
Hi, I'm Maddie, and I work with prospective Fuquans interested in marketing. As I got ready to embark on my MBA experience, I wanted to know what it was really like to pursue a career in marketing at b-school.
As a first year, I’m excited to help share my experience with future marketers considering Duke! Feel free to use the contact form below to reach out with any questions about marketing at Fuqua, the club, or opportunities after your MBA.
What types of events does the Marketing Club provide to get hands-on experience with marketing?
The Duke MBA Marketing Club seeks to provide its members with ample opportunities to get the experience of the marketing world right here on campus. Every year, Fuqua holds an internal case competition and sends groups of students to Marketing Case Competitions across the country. Aside from those case competitions, Fuqua also holds an annual Brand Challenge to give participants a true brand management experience and an excellent opportunity to showcase their skills.
What resources are available for members who are switching to marketing without prior experience?
How focused is the club on CPG versus other industries?
CPG has long been one of the premier industries for marketers to flex their branding and general management muscles, but there are plenty of marketing opportunities in other sectors! Our club focuses on providing students with the tools they need to recruit for marketing roles in any industry, and we bring a variety of companies to campus to engage with students.
What makes Fuqua stand out as marketers?
