Partnership Programs Overview

The profession of marketing and advertising offers a unique opportunity for professors, practitioners and students to learn, collaborate and innovate together. Toward that goal, AEF offers classroom guest speakers who are visiting professionals direct from the field, annual Visiting Professor fellowships that partner academics with agencies and marketing organizations, compelling thought leadership symposia and an Honors Night awards program to honor both marketing and advertising trailblazers who inspire our students, as well as outstanding students themselves.
