MADE Internship Program
The MADE (Marketing and Advertising Education) summer internship sourcing program is the first Pathways 2020 program from the ANA Educational Foundation. This program originated from the findings uncovered in the study entitled “Bridging the Talent Disconnect: Charting Pathways to Future Growth“. There was a resounding call across all key stakeholders surveyed in the study – students, academia and industry – about the need to have a robust internship experience as a critical step to future entry-level employment in the advertising and marketing industry. Founded as a partnership between the ANA Educational Foundation and the Alliance for Inclusive and Multicultural Marketing with a goal of 50% of MADE Interns placed come from a diverse background as defined by ethnicity and gender.
