The Master Marketing Team (MMT) consists of two half-yearly committees: MMT Fall and MMT Spring. The committees consist of MSc Marketing students who organise events for their fellow MSc Marketing students.
The purpose of the events is to introduce students with the dynamic world of marketing and to give them an idea what a marketing career is like. Two of the events consist of lectures and workshops given by big marketing companies. One event consist of an Inhousetour through the Netherlands and the fourth one will be a new career and recruitment event. The last few years have shown that both students and companies are interested in the MMT!
Because of the busy lives of MSc Marketing students the events will be of one day maximum. As part of the MMT you will organize one or two events and be responsible for an interesting, creative and inspiring day.
The other important task of the MMT is being the voice of the MSc Marketing students. You will be responsible for the communication between the MSc Marketing students and the Marketing department. The chairman will represent the MSc Marketing students during meetings with the Marketing department. During these meetings, the courses, exams or other study related topics will be discussed.
As already mentioned above you will organize two events especially for MSc Marketing Students. You will approach companies for sponsoring and workshops. Furthermore you will work together with the MARUG board. And of course you will be in close contact with the marketing department. This is an English-speaking committee.
MMT Fall is responsible for the organization of the following two events:

External Relations I
This function is for Dutch-speaking students only as the contact with the companies must be in Dutch.
The main responsibility of the external relations officers is to acquire sponsors for the events the MMT organises. All contacts with various companies are in hands of the commercial officers, and it is highly important that contractual agreements are met. As you are in touch with companies quite often, it is important that you posses commercial skills and perseverance. The commercial relations officer of the MARUG board will help you with tips and tricks in order to get an overview of potential companies to reach out to. It is a great challenge to convince companies for your event, and it can be therefore time-consuming during some periods of time.
PR & Promotion
As PR & Promotion officer you are responsible for the promotion of the events organized by MMT. This consists of managing the social media but also includes answering questions from the students. Furthermore, you will design the flyers and posters and organise some lecture talks.
Day Organisation & Treasurer
As day organisation and treasurer you have two tasks. The task of the day organization is to organize the whole day, from location to arranging a lunch. You are also responsible for composing the script of the day. In this script the task of every member including the companies’ speakers and the timing of the day are included. Your second task is treasurer. As a treasurer you are responsible for controlling the account and the budget of the day.
