Marketing Accelerator Program

Support

The support of firms and professionals are integral to MAP. It provides an opportunity for students to connect with employees, managers, and recruiters, learn about the incredible marketing opportunities available for them to apply to, and understand the culture of the organization.

It can be challenging as a university student to gain professional relationships with key business people and marketing professionals in Vancouver, as most university events do not extend beyond a company tour with limited time to speak with employees.

Additionally, being able to be taught lessons by professionals, or doing work for a local start-up, can provide students with hands-on learning opportunities that are highly impactful.
