Come to the 3rd Annual Baylor Business Advertising Summit: “Celebrating the Creativity of Waco!”
Join us at our 3rd Annual Baylor Business Advertising Summit taking place February 7, 2020 in Waco, Texas. The event will be held in Foster 240 from 11:00am-4:00pm. In the spirit of Advertising Week, we plan to convene the leading professionals from advertising and marketing agencies in Texas. Industry trends, professional development seminars and more will be presented. We also want to expose our students to the vast career opportunities in advertising and marketing.
Network with Colleagues as well as with Baylor Advertising and Marketing Students
In 2017, a startling report was presented by the Advertising Educational Foundation (AEF) on the lack of qualified college graduates in the talent pipeline for careers in Advertising and Marketing. Bridging the Talent Disconnect: Charting the Pathways to Future Growth was the AEF's new study that purported that there is a ”looming marketing and advertising talent crisis…and there is a lack of common vision, vocabulary and perceived relevance among marketers, young professionals and the colleges and universities.“ The Association of National Advertisers also attributes this crisis to outdated curriculum at universities and the lure of attractive career opportunities in Silicon Valley and Wall Street. We at Baylor Business are on a mission to do something about this crisis. We truly hope you will join us as we work to bridge the gap between the advertising industry and academia to empower the next generation towards careers in advertising and marketing.
