Marketing Advisory Board | UMSL

The world of marketing and communications is constantly changing and evolving, for this reason, the University of Missouri–St. Louis created a Marketing Advisory Board in 2013. Dr. Perry Drake created the board to establish the direction of programming and research. This board is made up of accomplished professionals and industry leaders with experience in the field of marketing, communications in social networks, brand, advertising, entrepreneurship, sales and customer relationship management. The marketing faculty within the College of Business uses the Marketing Advisory Board in order to:

  • Provide guidance and thought leadership on matters related to educational quality, curriculum, business needs, academia-industry collaboration, etc.
  • Provide counsel on strategy and issues affecting the future of the Marketing and Entrepreneurship Department
  • Strengthen bonds among the department, alumni, friends, and industry
  • Give advice to students regarding career selection and career development activities
  • Support scholarship opportunities for marketing students
  • Support the Marketing Club (student organization) and their initiatives
  • Support all industry conference and summits through participation and sponsorship

The members of the board are opinion leaders within the St. Louis region, nationally and internationally. We are proud of our members, teachers and the various organizations they represent.
