Seattle Marketing Trek - 2010
The 2010 GMN Marketing Trek was designed to provide 30 first year MBA students with an opportunity to learn about Seattle companies and career options in marketing. Seattle was chosen in a majority vote for the innovative companies in the city, as well as the desire of the GMN to spread our reach to the West Coast. The Trek took McCombs MBAs to Microsoft, Amazon and Starbucks (to name a few) where they learned about the jobs of local Marketing Managers and got an inside view of life in their Marketing Departments. 2010 was the second consecutive year of the GMN Trek, and we look forward to future years of successful treks led by the leadership of GMN.
A Year in the Life of a CPG MBA
GMN members attended Frito Lay's two-day event called "A Year in the Life of a CPG MBA". Representatives from Frito Lay provided an in-depth look at the consumer packaged goods industry and the roles of MBAs throughout the industry. The case this year was focused on Doritos and its core consumer.
