SMU Marketing Society (SMARKETING)
SMARKETING is a dedicated marketing society in SMU. We are the go-to platform for students to navigate the marketing industry, spark engaging conversations, create exciting opportunities and empower future marketing leaders. You can expect various events revolving around marketing starting from company sharings, company visits, intern insights, mentorship, to networking night.
Our signature Marketing Networking Night allows SMU students to connect with marketing professionals from a wide range of industries on a massive scale. We have previously invited speakers from Google, MasterCard, Expedia, and more. Additionally, we also have a mentorship program - partnering with industry professionals - to help our members excel academically, gain insights into the marketing industry and develop their interpersonal skills. At SMARKETING, we always put the welfare of our members first. Every year, we organise welfare drives to share our love and support to our members.
We are honoured to invite all SMARKETING members to attend all our events and let us guide you through the multi-faceted nature of the marketing world!
