The University of Portland Marketing Group (UPMG) is a student-run organization dedicated to providing experience and learning opportunities to students that are interested in any and all facets of marketing. UPMG gives students the opportunity to network with industry professionals while gaining real-world experience. Each year we help businesses in Portland better market their business, advertise, or research the current market.
Last year, we worked on a market research project for 141 Eyewear and an online marketing strategy for AlexSandra’s Vintage Emporium. Through these projects, students are given the opportunity to learn and grow outside of the classroom. We encourage each of our members to give us input on what they are interested in learning and experiencing within the marketing sphere, so that we can facilitate and create opportunities for them.
Students pursuing any major are welcome to join the UPMG as marketing is applicable to any industry. As a member, you will be working in teams to develop marketing plans for local businesses. In addition, members will have access to special guest speakers, portfolio development sessions, and networking opportunities.
If you are interested in becoming a member or would like to use our services, please see the "Let's Talk" tab.
