Fisher’s Marketing Club provides first-hand marketing experience, networking, and resume-building opportunities through collaboration with the American Marketing Association (AMA), local marketing professionals, and the College’s School of Business faculty and staff.
Acting as a collegiate chapter of the AMA, the club meets weekly to plan upcoming events and fundraisers. The chapter’s professional development arm offers opportunities for involvement in several different categories, including communications and media, finance, professional operations, community service, and fundraising. The group also arranges tours of local advertising agencies and marketing firms to help members experience the workplace environment and learn more about each position in the industry.
Marketing Week is celebrated annually on campus during the first full week of October. This event is a chance for AMA collegiate chapters to showcase both the variety and depth of marketing and opportunities for careers in marketing.

Fisher’s collegiate AMA chapter works closely with the Rochester AMA chapter throughout the year. One annual event sponsored by the Rochester chapter is the Rochester Professional Chapter Collegiate Conference. Conference participants benefit from mingling with and learning from marketing professionals in Rochester and the surrounding area. In addition to attending marketing programs, they are afforded guidance, networking and volunteer opportunities, and awards throughout the event’s timeframe.
