Marketing Trip to Toronto
The Career Centre hosts a two-night yearly marketing trip to Toronto during the fall reading week. A select group of 20 marketing students will head to Toronto to visit some of the best companies around.
Not your average road trip, the Marketing Trip to Toronto will give you the chance to visit innovative companies and integrated digital marketing agencies – all in two days! These industry leading companies are opening their doors to you and welcoming you to their offices for different types of activities such as office tours, meet and greets, and presentations.
By visiting these organizations, you will learn not only about what they do, but also about how their leaders in marketing got to where they are. The goal of the trip is to expose you to a wide variety of experienced marketing professionals and to give you an introduction to the marketing world. It will also be a great opportunity to network and connect with business professionals in Toronto.
Applications for the fall 2018 trip will open in September 2018.
