Welcome to Texas American Marketing Association’s 2nd annual Marketing Case Competition! Have you heard the latest BUZZ around campus? We are SO happy to announce that this year’s 2018 event is sponsored by our Chapter’s platinum sponsor, Bumble Bizz.
Bumble launched in 2014 as a dating app, but has grown to become a social networking app that connects people looking for love (Bumble Date), friendship (Bumble BFF), and networking (Bumble Bizz). Bumble believes in the power of One Connection. All it takes is one person to connect you to another person or business to get your foot through the door. With this philosophy in mind, Bumble launched a professional networking vertical, Bizz, to help users make lasting connections.
This event is open to ALL Undergraduate students and will take place October 15-20th.
Monday, October 15th: Case Kickoff – 7 to 8 AM @ CBA Events Room
Wednesday, October 17th: Bumble Bizz Office Hours – 4:30-6 PM (Location coming soon…)
