Thinking Forward Award

Thinking Forward 2024

The Thinking Forward: Leadership & Innovation in Marketing Award is given in recognition of the ability to "think forward" and lead the next generation of responsible citizens and marketing professionals.

This award is not for the student with the best grade point average or most leadership or volunteer activities, but rather for students who exemplify the best combination of outstanding qualities across four categories:

  • Academic achievements
  • Leadership experience
  • Volunteer activities and/or contributions to community and society,
  • Work experience

The Marketing Department will review students that meet award requirements and will present the award at the 2024 Thinking Forward Conference.
