The MARUG is part of the Marketing Associatie Nederland (M.A.N), which is the national marketing association of the Netherlands. Besides the MARUG, the marketing study associations of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Tilburg and Maastricht are also part of the M.A.N. The M.A.N. offers a number of national events and networks in which MARUG-members can participate.
The National Marketing Battle is the largest Dutch recruiting event for academic students in the field of Marketing. The event is focused on students from various Dutch universities who are in the final phase of their studies and who are interested in marketing. During this event, you will get to know several well-known firms by the means of several activities such as inhouse days, challenging cases, interesting workshops, speed dates, recruitment lunches and diners and network socials.
The Dutch Marketing Battle 2019 will take place on the 7th and 8th of February. This year is organized by the National Marketing Battle Board from Groningen. For more information, check out this page, their website or like the NMS Facebook page.
This event is for dutch-speaking students only.
Each year, the M.A.N. and the NIMA organise the Dutch Marketing Awards for students who have been shortlisted from several Dutch universities. At this event, the best Marketing Thesis of the Netherlands will be chosen.
The Register Marketeer Academy (RM Academy) is a collaboration between NIMA and the M.A.N.. RM Academy, marketeers who have been working in marketing for over 15 years, provides the possibility to connect Register Marketeers with students. In this way, Register Marketeers are able to transfer their knowledge through a presentation and/or workshop to marketing students. Every session of the RM Academy is focussed on a certain theme, e.g. City Marketing, Sales in a changing world and SEO Marketing.
The RM Academy takes place 8 to 10 times a year, with a different city as host for each session. Every city which has an association connected to the Dutch Marketing Association, hosts a Register Marketing Academy at least once a year. Usually, the RM Academy is in the afternoon and evening and is accessible both for Register Marketeers and students.
