The Advertising Management program at the School of Business has steadily grown in size and stature. PSU has made a name for itself in a variety of student ad competitions, most recently in the National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) where the team took first regional place for the fifth time in the last 10 years. The team won best overall presentation for the third year in a row, including team member Lane Martell winning best male presenter. The team went on to place sixth in the country—the second highest PSU has ever placed at nationals.
Thanks to a generous gift from the Portland Advertising Industry Emergency Fund (AIEF), advertising students will now have access to its first ever dedicated scholarship, in addition to added student support for the next 10 years. Gifts like these help us create and enhance innovative programs to help our talented students reach their potential.
Want to see the winning campaign? Please join us for an upcoming event Celebrating Excellence: An Evening with our Advertising Program on Nov. 7, 2012. Samples of the students’ work will be showcased at the event. We will also celebrate Professor Don Dickinson’s retirement and introduce our new Director of Advertising Management, Professor Maureen O’Connor.
