Tippie case competition
Each year, AMA hosts a real-world marketing case competition surrounding the topic of sustainability research in business. Teams from universities all over the Midwest compete during this intense two-day event for a $1,250 grand prize. This is a fun event whether you are competing for the cash or behind-the-scenes making it happen.
We visit a major marketing hub within the Midwest each semester. Each trip will give you insight into the amazing things that are happening in the marketing industry. These visits may even introduce you to your future employer.
Battle of the Bands
One of the highlights of our year is our philanthropic event to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. At the Battle of the Bands, a group of local artists go head-to-head at an Iowa City venue. The best part about the battle? The crowd determines who the grand prize winner is.
