Dr. Larsen and the JMU Department of Marketing,
I am forever grateful for my years at JMU as a College of Business student, where I had the unbelievable opportunity to learn from one of the nation’s most devoted faculties. The passion for excellence and thirst for knowledge that is exhibited in each lecture from the faculty is a trait that becomes contagious to students, and in turn, is sought after by every employer in the country. JMU allowed me to start my career, post-graduation, with the confidence necessary to succeed and contribute from day one. I began my career working for an online marketing agency as an internet marketing specialist and was promoted to manager roughly one year after I began. This wouldn’t have been possible without the depth and width of the topics covered in the College of Business. Recently, I accepted a “Search Engine Optimization Analyst” position for WebstaurantStore.com, the nation’s leader in restaurant equipment and supplies, and I couldn’t be happier. I arrived at JMU thinking marketing would be a great major to select and now that I look back at it, I know that it is one of the best, bar none.
