A REVOLUTIONARY

Simternship

Give students the opportunity to integrate a marketing campaign in a real-world setting. With the IMC Simternship, each student has the opportunity to target specific audiences, develop effective positioning, and create a unified communication strategy by working as a marketing manager for a fictitious company called Buhi Supply Co.

The Integrated Marketing Communications Simternship Rounds

In this Simternship, students get hands-on, practical experience by assuming the role of marketing manager at Buhi Supply Co., a fictitious company. Their goal is to increase the reach of the company's smart luggage line by executing a two-year-long stream of campaigns that will be reassessed every quarter. Students will determine at which phase of the marketing funnel to target selected audiences. They will also create and optimize positioning statements using the information and budget provided.

  • Round 1

    Students market the value of the Buhi luggage line to new customers.

    Students continue to market the Buhi luggage line by further campaigning to meet objectives by the end of the year.

  • Round 3

"We all need real-world experience, and not being able to have that and walking into a job can be frustrating for students and new hires. This [courseware] was written to really show a marketer how to develop, implement and measure a marketing campaign. It's giving [students] the skills they need to walk out the door and get those jobs."
