ANDERSON, S.C.(courtesy andersonuniversity.edu) — Senior Marketing students in the Anderson University College of Business took on major brands as teams in the annual Save the Brand competition. In the Nov. 29 event, student teams competed to creatively resurrect a major chain store brand, each with unique ideas incorporating aspects from all of their training from the last four years in the AU College of Business.
“Special thanks to our five judges, including Mary Ellen Grom, Laura Williams, Alexander Vitou, Brian Whitaker, and Jen Hubbell — all Upstate SC business leaders — for donating $1,200 in total prize money and for investing their expertise into the lives of future business leaders,” said Dr. Scott Whitaker, Anderson University assistant professor of Marketing. “It got competitive, and we had lots of fun. Congrats to all my students for doing an amazing job with their presentations.”
“We’re incredibly proud of the innovative thinking and hard work our students demonstrated in the Save the Brand competition,” said Cade Tessman, Anderson University College of Business corporate event coordinator. “This event not only reflects the real-world skills our students are developing, but also the strong community support from our experienced judges and alumni. Watching our students apply their learning in such dynamic ways reinforces our commitment to providing a top-tier business education. A big thank you to the judges and everyone involved in making this event a success.”
