Utah Valley University American Marketing Association (UVU AMA) is a student leadership organization that incorporates teamwork to teach students marketing skills, promote professional development, and to create a sense of community. In short, we try to teach students about marketing, help them find internships and jobs, and create a professional business environment for students that fosters future marketers. We also have a great time doing it.

While all students at UVU are welcome to join, we usually welcome students in marketing, business management, and communications to join UVU AMA. Usually, students join the club their junior year after completing all of their business matriculation classes.
