Advertising & Marketing Club


Michigan Advertising and Marketing (MAM) is a student organization that provides the opportunity for students to gain marketing and advertising experience by consulting businesses, startups, and nonprofits in how to effectively market and advertise themselves.

Our Teams

Client Teams

Client teams are made up of 4 to 6 students and are tasked with developing marketing strategies for their client. Each client team is lead by an Account Director who communicates directly with the client and facilitates team meetings

Market Research Team

The Market Research Team ( MRT) is responsible for conducting market research, which provides client teams with key information to plan and execute marketing strategy, as well as measure its success. MRT often conducts field experiments, survey research, online research, and data analysis.

Creative Design Team

Creative Design Team (CDT) members are responsible for the creative work for all of the MAM clients. In addition to designing and producing content for client teams, they also participate in CDT wide projects and activities. Past projects have included mobile application design, posters and fliers, social media posts, and videos.

Testimonials from Alumni

  • MAM helped grow my love for brands and what they mean to people. It's such a special experience because you're helping build brands for companies local and close to your heart in Ann Arbor - companies you've had your own experience with. I worked my way up the "ladder" in MAM and loved each of my roles uniquely and how it shaped my career aspirations to become a brand strategist.

    Reema Rao, Senior Brand Strategist at Cavalry
  • My 4 years spent with MAM were invaluable during my post-graduation job search. The experience I was able to demonstrate through the projects I worked and and the clients I worked with really helped demonstrate my real-world capabilities to potential employers.

    Ryan Daly, Sustainability Marketing Manager at NSF International
  • Having a leadership position in MAM is very akin to managing teams and driving client success in the real world. This organization sets you up for demonstrating credibility, fresh ideas, and thought leadership as it relates to marketing, market research, and advertising.
