Presented by:

Shana Pereira, Adjunct Professor and Director, Client Strategy and Development, Resolution Media, Marketing Department
Nancy Adzentoivich, Adjunct Professor and Managing Director, Resolution Media, Marketing Department

The world of marketing, branding, and advertising has evolved in recent years thanks to the Internet and e-commerce, Google, social media such as Facebook and Twitter, and advances in smartphones and other mobile devices. The statistics are telling: over six billion hours of video are watched on YouTube every month, one in six people around the world have a Facebook account, and our smartphones have evolved from devices that we use to make actual phone calls to powerful personal control centers.  

In response to the rapid changes taking place in the marketing field, LMU's M-School initiative was developed to transform the way students in the College of Business Administration (CBA) learn about and become immersed within this fast-changing world. M-School was launched in Fall 2012 and it has since grown to a program that has reached over 130 LMU students with a five-course curriculum. The M-School's learning and educational model stresses the concept of engaged learning, fostering close partnerships with the greater-LA branding and advertising community, including Deutsch LA, Electronic Arts, Mattel, Google, TBWA\Chiat\Day, Facebook, and TOMS. M-School courses are co-developed and co-taught with our industry partners to ensure that timeless perspectives, frameworks, and theories are blended with current practice. It also ensures that our students are exposed to leading-edge course material and are also able to build and foster industry connections that help them evaluate individual career choices and opportunities.

In this CTE Lunch and Learn session, Professors Rohm, Pereira, and Adzentoivich will talk about three elements of the M-School’s engaged learning model: 1) course development, 2) an innovative course project designed to bridge theory and practice in which student teams create and execute live paid search campaigns (employing Google AdWords) for six prominent non-profit organizations, and 3) new approaches to assessing student learning and performance. Additionally, the session will include an interactive component designed to have participants generate ideas on how their departments within the LMU community might begin to rethink their own unique approaches to education.
