Students interested in vibrant student life at the School of Business will want to check out the Marketing Club and Delta Mu Delta. Both groups are actively involved in student life on and off-campus. The Marketing club connects with local businesses by coming up with marketing strategies and working with them to implement them into their business plan. Currently, the Marketing Club is working on creating a student chapter of the American Marketing Association. Students from the Marketing Club recently attended an AMA chapter meeting in Albuquerque and networked with marketing professionals in the city. By upgrading to an AMA student chapter, the organization will have an opportunity to network with marketing professionals in Southwest New Mexico to add exposure to the Marketing Program at WNMU.
Becoming a Delta Mu Delta member is an honor that rewards students for their achievement, earnest, intelligent purpose. The School of Business believes that this should be the goal of every student pursuing a degree in business administration. Delta Mu Delta’s standards are high.
